Plans near Barcelona: Sant Ponc Reservoir

The destinations by surprise, those that you do not expect, like the sunset with reddish colors that catches you unexpectedly and you freak out. Well that happened to me this Sunday.

Some very nice friends who took pity on my Sunday loneliness took me to this place. We left home and I didn't really know where I was going, when we were arriving at Cardona, a destination that I recommend for its salt mine, then I realized that it would be a place that I had never even heard of.

The Sant Ponç reservoir is about 40 kilometers from Manresa, 108 km from Barcelona City. Let's say it's not quite close, but taking into account that the swamp is huge, clean and not very crowded, it's a highly recommended destination to enjoy a bit of tranquility.

The Sant Ponç reservoir is located in the Solsonès Region, in the Province of Lleida. I'm not going to give you the whole story about this place because I really don't know much about the place. Simply: I went, I liked it, I had a good time and I would definitely visit again.

Exact direction: Pantà de, Sant Ponç, Lleida

The Sant Ponç Reservoir and its turquoise waters

What impressed me the most about this place is the color of the water 😍 A marvel! Literally!

It doesn't look like a swamp... And it's just that none of the swamps I've been to have had, even close, a water so crystal clear For that reason, the quality of the water is that the swamps do not attract much attention to me. But this? Let's see, I'm not saying it's a Canadian lake, however is very pretty… If you don't believe me look at the photos.

We are at the end of August and it seems like yesterday when summer began. However, there are still some long days and good weather ahead to continue exploring and traveling locally and madly 😂 – without too many guides, without too much haste.-
