PLAN OF OUR TRIP
We will start our route at the Farga de Bebié. La Farga de Bebié is a centenary textile colony between the counties of Osona and El Ripollès.

It was founded by Swiss Edmund Bebié Wild, taking advantage of the strategic situation offered by the meander that draws the River Ter. The construction of the factory began in 1895.

Our route will pass through the Sierra de los Bufadores. La Sierra de los Blowers has special microclimate with large blocks of rock covered with moss and a good flora particular .We will see the holes in the ground. If we get closer we will notice that the air that comes out is cold. Sometimes you can hear it whistling in its interior, hence the name of blowers. As we move forward we will find more holes. Some of them have been reviewed by expert speleologists. Here the terrain is unstable and it is not advisable to enter the blowers. It is a place of great beauty that has a magical air. We will continue along the ridge of La Serra with spectacular views of the Vall de Bisaura and descend to the Coll de Bevi and a paved road to Sta. María de Besora, at the exit of the village we will take a path to the right and shortly after we divert to climb up the Castle.

The castle of Besora is a castle that crowns a hill, located to the west of the town of Santa Maria de Besora, and at an altitude of 1,023 meters, in the region of Osona, where today only left the ruins. It was the historical center of the territory of the present municipalities of Santa Maria de Besora, Sant Quirze de Besora and Montesquiu.

The historian Carreras Candi published in 1892 a series of data on the castle of Besora and its physical decline, which has been aggravated over time until there are only remains of walls of the castle and the Romanesque church that still conserves the apse and some Lombard strips.

We will go down the same path and continue towards Pla de Revell with panoramic views that range from Pedraforca or Puigmal to Montseny, all Osona and the Bellmunt mountain range. We will continue the descent to the Castle of Montesquiu. Their historical references go back to the Middle Ages, at which time the castle of Montesquiu dates back, a large fortified house with origins in the 10th century.
