Lake Graugés is a beautiful place located a 10-minute drive from Cal Barraca. It is an ideal place to walk with the whole family, surrounded by nature and riverside forest. You will find picnic tables and a restaurant nearby.
5 minutes from Cal Barraca you can find the beginning of this Via Verda. You can start the route from the Rosal Colony, or from the side of the Medieval Bridge of Pedret. Most of the route passes next to the river Llobregat and there are different places where you can easily access it. If you do the complete round trip, it is a total of 10.5 Kms.
The walk is suitable for the whole family and at any time you can turn around and return to the starting point.
You can go up there by car (10 minutes from Cal Barraca) or on foot (different itineraries and arrival times). Once you reach the car parks, the views on a clear day will leave you speechless, but we advise you to go up to the foot of the Sanctuary, or the Cave, where the views are even more amazing.
You can take a short circular walk lasting about 30 minutes, where you can observe nature in its purest form.
For lovers of pre-Romanesque art or Romanesque architecture, the church of Sant Quirze de Pedret is a must-see. Crossing the bridge you can walk in about 5 minutes. The environment invites serenity and well-being.
Guided tours take place on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at 10, 11 and 12.

The Pine of the Three Branches became a symbol of Catalan nationalism, since Bishop Jacint Verdaguer wrote the Poem entitled The Pine of the Three Branches, where King James I dreamed that he would be king of Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia and the Islands. Every third Sunday in July is Nationalist Affirmation Day.
Very close, in the same environment we find the Pi Jove, where every year the young Independentistas meet.
Both trees have been declared monumental trees by the Generalitat de Catalunya.
