Sheer and narrow streets, covered paths and bridges shape this medieval village that was established in 1297. As a remind of the medieval past you can visit the monastery Santa Maria de Lillet, the round chapel of Sant Miquel and the main bridge in the village center called Pont Vell.
Across the history this has mainly been an industrial village. Yet on the XVII century it was an important textile producing point, and at the beginning of the XX century it became the center of Portland cement production in Catalonia. Due to this new activity the construction of a particular industrial net was needed: A cable-car to carry the coal from the mines in the mountains to the valley; a train to carry up the coal to the factory; and the factory itself, a particular building made out of Catalan arch and wrought iron. From this recent past you can visit the main touristic attractions in the village: the Cement Train, the Gaudí Gardens and the Cement Museum.
