Torelló is on the northeast edge of the comarca of Osona, within the natural sub-comarca of the Ges Valley, together with Sant Vicenç de Torelló and Sant Pere de Torelló.
The River Ges occupies the bottom of the valley and has its confluence with the River Ter in Torelló.
The combination of an important natural, cultural and historic architectural heritage makes Torelló an important tourist centre. The town combines culture, landscape, tradition and innovation. The centre of Torelló offers two points of interest: on the one hand there is the arcaded Plaça Vella and the adjoining old town with its venerable houses, and on the other, the Plaça Nova and the Church of Sant Feliu, erected in 1672 and decorated with the modern paintings of Joan Rifà. Outside the town itself is the Santuari de Rocaprevera, from where magnificent views can be had of the Vic Plain, Collsacabra and the Pyrenees. Also worthy of mention are the Industrial Colonies that are scattered throughout the area and all the heritage sites associated with the settlements that date back to the time of the industrialisation of the River Ter.
There are various routes that can be followed to explore this area, amongst which are the short distance footpaths: the P.R. C- 45, the Ges Valley Footpath, which connects the three centres of population in the valley offering a wide variety of landscapes, and the P.R. C-47, the Ges Riverside Walk. Numerous events organised throughout the year make Torelló a very active and enterprising town: the Carnival of the Interior, the Flea Market, the Mountain Film Festival, Festus…
Torelló is a dynamic town, with an important industrial sector and varied commercial and service activity. The web page www.ajtorello.cat apart from allowing you to make a virtual visit to Torelló, also offers information about the town’s geographical location, its history, footpaths, gastronomy, and the most important festivals and other events.
