In Salt del Cabrit there is nothing at all. No water. The popular waterfall has disappeared, which joins the desolate image of the drought in the meander of the Ter, as seen in La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos.
And it is already beginning to be a constant because, last year at this time, the Salt del Cabrit was also dying, although this year it is even drier.
In normal conditions, in the Salt del Cabrit the stream of Sant Martí Sescorts rushes into the pools and the swamp of Sau, in front of the monastery of Sant Pere de Casserres. But, no water comes down at this point in the month of September.
Salt del Cabrit is a very popular waterfall. It is an attractive excursion, but the drought is spoiling it at the moment. To get there by car you have to go in the direction of l'Esquirol on the BV-5207 road. And there, take the C-153 towards Manlleu.
Just before reaching the Sant Martí Sescorts turnoff there is another one on the road on the right if you are arriving from Barcelona (on the left if you are arriving from Cantonigròs or Rupit from l'Esquirol).
Nearby, the meander of the Ter, in the surroundings of the Sau reservoir, also shows the image of drought under the careful custody of the monastery of Sant Pere de Casserres.
Next to the Sau reservoir we find the Ter meander viewpoint, from which you can see Sant Pere de Casserres, an 11th century Romanesque monastery of the Benedictine order and which has an origin closely linked to women.
