A unique journey through the region of L'Urgell, the unknown and unpopulated Catalan Tuscany

Urgell is synonymous with micro villages, nature, vineyards, olive groves, historical heritage and good food.

The Comarca de L'Urgell, where 10 of the 20 municipalities it houses have less than 500 inhabitants, for us it was a great unknown. It was with the project of the Regional Council of L'Urgell and Vanwwow, to create 12 overnight areas for motorhomes and campers, that we found the region that we would later fall in love with and with which today we present our first complete specialized guide to travel in motorhome or camper.

From the hand of the best hosts we could have, the Consell Comarcal de l'Urgell, we discovered Catalan Tuscany, a diamond in the rough. Unknown and unpopulated. A place where we show you the best corners to get lost with our mobile homes.
