In La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos we can appreciate the pause, the calm, of autumn in Puigcerdà, with this landscape that captures all the tones of this season of the year.
In some trees you can see the fall of leaves entering hibernation, while the mountains in the background are still very bare of snow despite these dates.
This perspective, however, has as its main protagonist Lake Puigcerdà, an artificial pond located in the northwestern part of this town in Baixa Cerdanya.
This idyllic place invites you to walk along its irregular hexagon shape, with its cobbled base, as well as its autumn-colored vegetation.
The lake's water supply comes from the Querol River and reaches Puigcerdà through an artificial irrigation ditch. The first news of the existence of this pond dates back to the 13th century, specifically December 2, 1260, as described by Mosén Jaume Martí y Sanjaume in his book Diario de Puigcerdà.
