The Bell Tower:

The tower dates from the SXII, and although the Church of Santa María began to be built following the guidelines of the Romanesque style, it was completed following the so-called Catalan Gothic. Today it is the only testimony of what was one of the most important constructions of Puigcerda, since the rest of the church was destroyed during the civil war.

Casino “Ceretà”

This building now houses the theater-cinema and an exhibition hall along with others, for cultural use.

It is still closely linked to its cultural origins being a meeting place for artists and writers. Started following the guidelines of the neoclassical style, it was inaugurated in 1893 as an eclectic style building.

Unfortunately, it only enjoyed 10 years of fullness, as a fire destroyed it and a great restoration work was necessary .

We recommend you to discover it and take a walk around the inside, as it is a beautiful construction with elegant moldings and a beautiful lamp of  Valencian origin.

Puigcerda’s Fort:

Actualmente solo podemos encontrar restos de los antiguos muros de defensa y una parte de muralla.

Fue durante el reinado del rey Alfonso I que se construyeron las murallas para defender a un pueblo, que en aquel momento era sin duda de gran valor estratégico. Debido a ello, Puigcerda sufrió muchos asedios y fue ya en 1678 que cuando el duque de Noailles hizo demoler definitivamente estas fortificaciones.

 

Currently we can only find remnants of old defense walls.

It was during the reign of King Alfonso I that the walls were built to defend the town, which at that time was undoubtedly of great strategic value. Due to this, Puigcerda suffered many sieges. The fortifications were demolished in 1678 after the Duke of Noailles orders.
