If you like trekking this is a good proposal at 1,30 hours from Barcelona. Sau was a quiet little village surrounded by a wonderful landscape . The catalan authorities decided to build a reservoir in that zone so the people who lived there had to leave. Nowadays when the water level is low (like the day we took the pics) you still can see the tower of the Sau's romanic church. You can go down (650m) from a delicious village called Tavertet (its visit is a must!). The views of the reservoir from Tavertet are just wonderful and if the day is clear you can see the mountains of Montseny and Pedraforca too.
Low difficulty; total time 3,5 hours walk
