Things to See in Cànoves i Samalús

There are a number of interesting buildings in both Cànoves and Samalús. 

The ruins of the Castle of Cànoves and the Church of Sant Muc are both Romanesque and are located in Cànoves. Nearby you'll also find the hermitage of Sant Salvador de Terrades, which despite its ancient appearance was actually built in 1930 by the architect Josep Maria Pericas i Morros.

Samalús also has its own castle but it dates from the early 20th century when the old Catalan country house of Can Bori was converted into a kind of folly. They did an excellent job though and the building is considered to be of national interest.

While you are in the area, you should really visit the famous old chestnut tree El Castanyer de Can Cuch, which with a perimetre of more than 20 metres at its base is the widest tree in Catalonia by some difference. It is located at 786 metres altitude on the Baga d'en Cuc.
