On the road linking Bellver de Cerdanya with La Seu d’Urgell there is the turning point with the indication. After passing the Arseguel bridge, there is a 1.7 km climb that leads to the upper part of the village. You must leave the car next to the church of Santa Coloma. The road is curved, but it is in good condition.
Arsèguel is one of the prettiest entrance doors to the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park.
The village dates from the year 996 and it can be seen in the architecture of the houses that are basically stone and wood with Arab roofing tiles. The streets are very small, cobbled with special charm. The walls are limestone with a reddish hue. The town has a lot of charm, but the one that most delighted me was the wooden balconies. They give it an interesting and different look.
The Romanesque church placed at the entrance of the village dates back to the 18th century. It surprised me for its size and because it is far from the center separated by the road. The apse has been lost, but it retains the side chapels. It's funny.
The town is characterized by its silence and tranquility. You have to stroll through the little streets and enjoy the landscape. Carrer de la Font Vella offers one of the best views of the river and the Cadi.
Before reaching the village, there is a traditional wool factory that works with hydraulic energy. It has a spinner of the s. XVIII where shears and shepherds' blankets are still made. It is located on the Arsèguel bridge and is a well deserved visit.
The last weekend of July is celebrated the gathering of the Accordionists of the Pyrenees, which is a traditional encounter with groups from all over the world. It is the oldest music festival in Catalonia dating from 1974. It is precisely for this reason that it is important to visit the Accordionists Museum. Although nowadays it is known for this important musical event, in the baroque time it was known for the Cadell family, known for its bandits in the area.
Another attraction of the place is to go through one of the many hiking trails that go out and / or go through the village. One of the most famous is the stretch of the Camino de Santiago that crosses the town.
The visit to the town can be as long as you want. The town itself can be seen in one day.
