Square of Poble Vell

The castle and church of Poble Vell in Súria, raised over a hill, dominate over the municipality that —with the demographic growth of the 19th century— expanded outside the walls until the bank of the Cardener.

Of medieval configuration, its narrow streets and stone houses hold all the charm of a historical village, without modern establishments that break the peaceful atmosphere. Admiring the façade of its buildings, one might be surprised to find lintels eminently sculpted in the 17th and 18th century, when the two doors of the wall that look towards Cardona and Manresa were opened.

Like all main squares, the one of the Poble Vell of Súria was also the vital centre of activity in the village until the beginning of the 20th century. Its triangular shape, of relatively small dimensions, surrounded by houses with notable interventions during the Baroque era, make it an ideal place to celebrate all kinds of cultural ceremonies, like those experienced in the 18th century.
