Calaf

Guide to the Municipalities

The 11th-century castle, the walls and streets of the Old Town, the stately homes and the Plaça Gran square, declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest in 2003, make these the ideal surroundings for strolling and getting to know details of the country's history. Geocaching fans have the opportunity to find their hidden treasures concealed amongst the landscapes of the ancient municipality. The famous (and prestigious) weekly market has made Calaf an obligatory destination for those who truly appreciate the trade in quality crafts.

Economic activity

Industry is the most noteworthy sector: agri-food, construction materials, agricultural and plastics machinery, ceramic manufacturing, as well as sawmills. The old textile industry has lost much steam. There is a great deal of commerce, since the small municipality is in the middle of Catalonia and acts as a transport junction. Agriculture and livestock raising are secondary activities (cereals and pigs).
