Vilanova de Sau

In 1962 the dam was opened and, since then, the features of Valley of Sau changed. The town of Sant Romà disappeared under the water and only the belfry stands above occasionally. Vilanova, however, prospered and the ancient rural town has managed to combine its past with the creation of a service centre dedicated to leisure and tourism.The reservoir added another attraction to this town that rises from the valley to the leafy Guilleries, range of mountains of clear water, ideal for river fishing. His term includes the ancient parishes of St. Pere de Castanyadell andSant Andreu de Bancells.
