Learn about the heritage that the industrialization process has left in Besalú. Witnesses of the past and key elements in the development and history of the town.
Water, electricity, paper, iron and lime are the protagonists of an industry that is still alive in some cases.
The Besalú Industrial Heritage Route is geo-located, so from this website you can arrive at each of its elements: the Subirós flourmill, the power station, the old Can Surós paper mill, the remains of the Roman metallurgical workshop in the Capellada district, the old limekiln and the modern LC Paper factory, further away from the village. Water, which is the driving force of all these productive processes that are seen in this route, and the fauna and flora that inhabit and enrich this environment complete this panorama of the town.
At each point along the route, there is a panel with a brief explanation of the most relevant information for each element. If you want to know more, a QR code takes you directly to the section of this same website that contains complementary information on the industry related to that element.
There are also signs along the route that will help you find your way and locate the different elements of the route.
