Balsareny Castle is located on a hill above the town of Balsareny. It is a fortress dating from 951 and is a good example of Catalan civil Gothic fortress. The current building, very well preserved, was constructed during the second half of the fourteenth century, during the reign of Peter III of Aragon, and was restored during the last years of the nineteenth century.

It was inhabited until 1976. It is one of the few castles regular and uniform central Catalonia. Pentagonal shaped, almost rectangular. On the ground floor there is a large tinell that retains all the atmosphere of the Gothic era. A stone staircase one section to the first floor where there is a gallery of semicircular arches and chambers. At the top are the battlements with loopholes characteristic of the last medieval centuries. The building was declared a National Cultural Heritage in 1949.

Next to the castle you can visit the Romanesque chapel of Our Lady of the Castle, which dates from the twelfth century. At the foot of the castle, the river Llobregat, is the birthplace of the sluice channel that provides water to the city of Manresa.
