Sustainable tourism in Moianès county with Biosphere certification

Moianès has only been a county for a little more than 8 years, but it’s become a magnet for sustainable tourism thanks to its commitment to securing the Biosphere certification for many of its attractions. 

Responsible management that ensures the balance within the region and among its residents is the secret of a county that, despite being formally established only a few years ago, is looking ahead to the future with great enthusiasm. There are many ways to discover its secrets.  

Toll Cave

This cave offers the opportunity to embark on a unique journey through prehistoric times. The area was submerged under the waters of an inland sea, full of large coral reefs, 38 million years ago.

The disappearance of this sea led to the fossilisation of the reef, creating the rock that formed the Toll Cave. A true geological wonder revealing thousands and thousands of years of history. 

Here we can find remains of prehistoric animals such as cave bears and hyenas, wolves and mammoths, and even traces of our ancestors.

Hemalosa Space

This former textile factory turned cultural space. includes the county’s Ecomuseum, with information on the history of the village of Oló and an exhibition on textiles and their historical importance in the village, featuring two restored antique looms. 

The space has a large auditorium for concerts, plays, film screenings and large-format shows, and two small rooms for courses and workshops.
