Family tourism, nature and a territory that never ceases to surprise you ... Welcome to the region of Les 1.000 masíes (catalan country house), Welcome to El Solsonès.
El Solsonès is a region located in central Catalonia. It consists of two distinct parts: the central depression with a landscape of undulating plains where wheat, barley and legumes and Mountain range and river valleys are cultivated with large extensions of forests that connect us to the Pre Pyrenees area with the massif of the Port of Comte (2.383 m) and the mountain range de Busa, Verd and Oden.
It is a region with very little industry. The economy is based on agriculture, with an occupation of 19% of the territory, livestock (30%) and the exploitation of forests (30%). The commercial and industrial activity is located in Solsona, the capital of comarca (+/-9,000 inhabitants).
El Solsonès has a large number of municipalities formed by scattered farmhouses, from here the origin of the legend of the territory of les 1.000 masies.
The forest is the element that unifies the territory and that unites the plains with the mountains. It is the territory with less density of population of Catalonia and 30% of the territory belongs to the network Natura 2000 and the Plan of spaces of Natural interest (PEIN).
