Les Llosses

This municipality covers a very extensive area, more than 100 km2, but has just 220 inhabitants, who, furthermore, live in a number of different scattered hamlets! It is home to incredible scenery, historically almost impregnable paths and a diverse cultural heritage just waiting to be discovered. Walk, explore, discover, witness how the seasons change the appearance of the countryside and sample the territory’s traditional fare.

The municipality of les Lloses

  • Origins

    Before the year 1000, a dozen parishes scattered around the area made up what is now the municipality of Les Llosses. Each parish, therefore, constituted a small village with its own life. Various aggregations over the course of history changed the municipal limits until its present condition in 1991. This explains why there are so many churches distributed around the municipality.
