Puig del Far is located on a cliff of the Guilleries – Savassona, north of Vilanova de Sau, within the municipality of Tavèrnoles.
In this place we can enjoy great views of the reservoir of Sau, as well as the natural park of the Guilleries – Savassona. We can also see the remains of an old circular tower from medieval times.
The lighthouses were circular communication towers. These towers were built during the High Middle Ages, probably during the 8th century, and formed a visual communication network throughout the territory. Between these towers, visual signals were sent to send information. The signals were made with smoke, fire, or with the reflection of the sun on crystals.
The state of conservation of this old tower is very bad. We can even observe the circular shape that gave way to a tower about 7 meters in diameter.
