Viladrau

Guide to the Municipalities

Viladrau is well known for the important number of rivers and streams that flow into many fountains, with high quality water characterised by its weak mineralisation. Among the fountains, worth noting are those of Paitides, Or, Matagalls, Curas, Oratorio, Lobo and Roble.

These fountains are located in an environment of great natural beauty, such as the natural landscapes of the Rosquelles mountain range or Mirabell hill. Apart from this, we can find remarkable monuments, such as the casal de l’Espinzella (12th century), or facilities such as the Euoprean Cultural Centre of Nature.

Joan Sala y Ferrer (1594-1634), better-known as Joan de Serrallonga, one of the most famous bandits of Catalonia’s history, was born in Viladrau. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), it was the refuge and meeting place for two of Catalonia’s most significant 20th century poets: Josep Carner and Carles Riba.
