Montellà i Martinet is a municipality located to the south of the region of La Cerdanya, this municipality is located in the course of the Segre river , due to its importance in the population, we can find the Interpretation Center of fluvial ecosystems or Casa del río .
Since it is located within the Cadí - Moixeró Natural Park , it has an extraordinary environment and landscape. For this reason, we find natural spaces such as the Pradería del Cadí located at the foot of the mountain; the Ridolaina valley ; the Pradería de Aguiló located at an altitude of 1,700 meters and where there is a refuge; or the Cristall and Bast channels .
Despite this, the municipality also contains remarkable architectural elements, although all of them are religious. You will find the church of Sant Genís de Montellà , that of Sant Martí de Víllec and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria de Bastanist .
But without a doubt its strong point is the Bunkers Park of Martinet i Montellà , these were part of the Pyrenees Line , a series of 10,000 bunkers built during the Second World War from Cap de Creus to the Basque Country, in order to prevent the entrance of the allied troops.
The center organizes guided tours of eight of the surviving bunkers , visiting combat points , artillery points and a series of interconnected underground galleries . In addition, you can visit the interpretation center , where the hard experience of a soldier in the bunkers is recreated through audiovisual media.
