The Berguedá region has a very important industrial past, as its main source of income once came from coal mining, textiles and cement. Today, all that remains is a memory, although a not-too-distant one, and a historical legacy that can be visited through different spaces.
The Asland cement factory in Clot del Moro, in the municipality of Castellar de n'Hug, closed down over thirty years ago.
It was the first Portland cement factory in Catalonia. Count Eusebio Güell, Antoni Gaudí’s patron, had it built in the late 19th century to exploit the limestone in the area.
Location: Paratge del Clot del Moro, s/n in Castellar de n'Hug.
