Ermita Sant Moí:
This hermitage, also called the Church of San Miguel (also San Mus), is next to the farmhouse of the same name. It is a pre-Romanesque building, probably built at the end of the 10th century. The last restoration was in 1920. Some say that St. Moí was a hermit who lived alone and was deaf, dedicated to prayer and built clogs, which left the on the edge of a path so that the walkers when they passed them took them. He adopted it as a pattern of those who lost their hearing asking: ‘Sant Moí, make me hear’
Located at 1533m altitude, we find the little remains of a castle that was part of the defensive ring of the 9th century. Cataloged today as a cultural asset of national interest, its term included the current municipalities of Vallfogona and Vidrà. The first gentlemen of Milany were the counts of Besalú. It had been the rocky fortress located at greater altitude in the interior of Catalonia. The castle was abandoned at the end of the s. XIV, when he lost the defensive function and the family went to Vallfogona, looking for a way to live more comfortable and practical. The few remaining remains respond to the reconstruction of the thirteenth century.
At about 1025m high and surrounded by crags, there are the remains of the castle of Besora and the Romanesque church of Santa Maria. It deserves the visit both for its architectural and historical value, as well as for geography. The castle is mentioned in 895. The church of Santa Maria documented in 898. The continued use of the castle by the Carlist troops led to the liberation of the liberals in 1839, as well as the church of Santa Maria.

Although there have been indications that the area of Sant Joan de les Abadesses was inhabited from the Paleolithic Inferior, the history of the town is intimately linked to the monastery. It was founded in 887 by Guifré el Pelós. It has an important medieval heritage linked to the Monastery of Sant Joan de les Abadesses. This was the first female monastery of La Gòtia and the first abbess was Emma de Barcelona, the daughter of Guifré.
