Rupit is a village in the county of Osona, in the subregion of the Collsacabra, in Catalonia, Spain. It is located at 822 m above sea level, 98 km from Barcelona.HistoryThe church of Sant Joan de Fàbregues and its castle are documented from the year 968. The church, which was the main church of the municipality, is located about 3 km from the castle. In the 12th century, the town grew around the castle of Rupit. Noble families built a new church, Sant Miquel, where they had built their houses. This church now is the parish church.In 1959 the municipality was officially named Rupit. In 1977, the hamlet of Pruit was united with Rupit village. And now it's officially called Rupit i Pruit.In origin both the hamlet of Pruit and the village of Rupit already shared the same jurisdiction under the viscount of Osona. According to the tradition, he lived in the castle of Rupit before moving to Cardona.Nowadays Rupit is best known as a tourist town, because of its medieval appearance, stone houses and streets made of natural rock. There are also interesting walks and sightseeing around the village and nearby cliffs.The "Riera de Rupit" is a small river running through Rupit and forms the Sallent waterfall when it meets the cliffs. There is a hanging bridge which provides access the center of the village.GeographyRupit is situated at about 868m. of altitude next to the "Riera de Rupit" (Rupit river) on a part of a small rocky hill. The old part of the village sits on a kind of narrow ridge above the river and some streets climb up the hill, reaching the very top of the hill, there are also some new houses built near the river and in a very close small valley behind the ridge. About 1 km in a straight line from the village there are cliffs and below them there is a huge valley at the bottom of which there are 2 big dams, the Pantà de Sau and the Pantà de Susqueda, where the Rupit river flows into after it falls down the "Sallent" waterfall. The rest of the municipality is mainly small flat fields surrounded by hills and small mountains. There are other small streams and ponds.
