Molló has been considered a village since 936, year of the act of consecration of the Church of Santa Cecilia. The town is mentioned by the name of Mollione, a Latin word that has been derived from Catalan as a “molló”, landmark or term that marks a limit. It is the last town before entering France through Prats de Molló, with a census of 336 inhabitants and an altitude of 1,200 metres. Only 7 km from Camprodon, one of the truly symbolic towns in Catalonia, and 10 km from Beget, considered one of the most beautiful villages. Its Romanesque church, Santa Cecilia, and the environment abundant in historical routes and rich in Romanesque art characterize the area.
A town located in the Ripollès region, in the province of Girona, at the heart of the Girona Pyrenees. With a census of 2,298 inhabitants, this town has become a point of reference for Catalan countryside tourism. Not only for its origins and history, but also for the wide range of activities it has to offer such as listening to the noise of the water coming down from its springs, breathing the fresh air of the mountains or enjoying the Romanesque art. In the centre of the town, the River Ter and its stream Ritort merge together. Camprodon is synonymous with nature, tradition, history, gastronomy, culture… a great place for the whole family to enjoy.
Ripollès is one of the cradles of Catalonia. Romanesque architecture is a main tourist attraction, with such outstanding examples as the monasteries of Ripoll, Sant Joan de les Abadesses and Camprodon, the Pont Nou, also in Camprodon, and the town of Beget. Ripollès gained strength from the hand of Wilfred the Hairy who at the end of the 9th century founded the great monasteries of Santa Maria de Ripoll (880) and the monastery of Sant Joan de les Abadesses (885).
