Vic preserves an important monumental and historical complex that reaches from Roman times to the present day. The oldest monument is the Roman temple but, without a doubt, the most outstanding is its Cathedral.
Consecrated to Saint Peter, it was the center around which the town center developed at the end of the 9th century, Vicus Ausonae, from which the name Vic comes. We also highlight in Vic the theater / performing arts center of La Atlàntida with an extensive cultural program.
In Sant Pere de Torelló and throughout the Valle del Ges the wood turning industry has been, and still is, a economic activity of great importance . The manufacture of spinning tops, bowling pins and other toys, bars or knobs and other pieces for furniture have brought wealth to the area, making the noble boxwood serve very often.
