Beget

The village of Beget, considered Catalonia's més bufó (cutest), was completely cut off from motorized vehicles until the mid-1960s, when a pista forestal (jeep track) was laid down. In 1980, Beget was finally fully connected to the rest of the world by an asphalt roadway, which can be hazardous when mist descends, as it often does. The GIV5223 road to Castellfollit de la Roca, 12 km (7 miles) away, is a spectacular drive through former volcanic peaks of the Alta Garrotxa. Beget's 30 houses are eccentric stone structures with heavy wooden doors and a golden color peculiar to the Vall de Camprodón. Archaic stone bridges span the stream where protected trout swim in clear mountain water.
