In fact, some of its locations have been preserved for safeguarding historical treasures, such as El Castellot archaeological site.

A quick look at the municipality of Bolvir
Bolvir is perfect for vacations and for buying a second home, whether it's a house, an apartment or a plot of land. Its territory, located more than a thousand meters above sea level, is divided into two zones: La Solana, which is close to the border with France, and Talltorta, which is located further south. As a center of culture, it is notable for having impressive architectural works that have been surrounded by exclusive holiday residential developments, such as La Pleta de Bolvir or La Ferratgeta. The art that can be enjoyed in the places of interest of this territory stands out for its Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque style, as it happens with other municipalities of Cerdanya.
Its emblematic and picturesque architecture is adorned by natural landscapes worthy of a postcard and several mountain ranges, such as the Sierra del Cadí. It is enjoyable in any season of the year, although the occupation tends to be greater in the winter months, when the environment is painted white and becomes a paradise for those who practice winter sports such as skiing or in summer when visitors and locals enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities on sunny days with mild temperatures.
One of the advantages of Bolvir is that there are options for all tastes: from attending world-famous events -such as the jazz festival in August- to enjoying horseback riding, mountain hikes, activities near lakes or gastronomic routes.
Places of interest and attractions in Bolvir
This area of the Pyrenees has unique attractions that catch the attention of all tourists, amongst which stand out La Fortaleza, the remains of a walled castle that was modeled with carved stone or the Romanesque church of Santa Cecilia, a temple that dates from the 12th century with its perfect barrel vault and its 15th century altarpiece. As in other municipalities of Cerdanya, religious architecture is famous in the locality: for lovers of this style there are other sites of interest, such as the Chapel of the Virgin of Hope, the Shrine of Our Lady El Remei, the Church of Sant Climent de Talltorta and a part of the route to Santiago de Compostela, one of the most visited tourist attractions after El Remei.
But not all buildings are so old: The Torre del Remei, an icon of power of the Catalan bourgeoisie of the twentieth century, stands as a modernist palace designed by the famous architect Freixa, creator of other works such as the castle of Torre de Riu in Alp or the Casino Ceretà in Puigcerdà. Converted today into a famous luxury hotel, El Remei, this modern style mansion offers a very exclusive luxury service thanks to its privileged location near the Cadí Moixeró Natural Park and extensive gardens, all of which make it one of the most visited sites of the municipality of Bolvir.
