A few metres before reaching Copons, the Riera Gran stream comes to a large drop, its waters falling attractively into the Nafre Pool.
Two head-water streams of the Anoia River flow through the uneven terrain of the municipality of Copons: Riera Gran and Riera de Sant Pere. The confluence of the two streams is located close to the town.
Over thousands of years the falling waters have gradually eroded the geological substrate, forming a deep hole permanently filled with water.
Local children have enjoyed swimming here for generations. Like all the water courses of Mediterranean Europe, its flow varies substantially according to the seasons and rainfalls.
How to get there
On the C-1412 from Igualada to Calaf, take the exit at Copons. As you make your way through the town’s narrow streets you’ll see a sign indicating the natural pool (Gorg). Easy access.
