Coal is the main symbol of identity of Cercs; coal and water. Mines were operated following the mill village model, as shown in the Mine Museum. And, although Cercs also allows you to follow a goodly part of the Berga industrial canal, it is Baells reservoir that is home to water sports and the most unrivalled view, as it is here that, depending upon the time of year, you can see the bell tower of the drowned old Romanesque church that shares its name.
Historically associated with its springs, particularly suited to afflictions of the skin, Vilada boasts a fascinating natural and architectural heritage. In addition to the remains of the castle, chapels and Romanesque churches is the rural architecture, with a significant number of picturesque farmhouses. In springtime, the wood is carpeted from end to end with red strawberries. Here, the landscapes offer a wondrous, majestic and imposing spectacle, creating unrepeatable colours and texture with every passing hour.
