#1 - Sant Jeroni Summit Loop
Muntanya de Montserrat Natural Park
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(60)
Length: 5.8 mi • Est. 3 h 40 m
This trail begins near the Montserrat Monastery. The path takes you through forest, which eventually becomes stone peaks. The Sant Jeroni is the highest point in the Montserrat massif. The top of Sant Jeroni offers great views of villages and a steep drop down. The path is well marked, but could still warrant a set of hiking poles. The trail is concrete and well packed dirt, many switchbacks so moderate climbing required and the terrain is pretty rough in patches, so advisable to wear comfort and appropriate footwear, and also warm clothing as it get cold the higher you go. Bring water and enjoy the breathtaking views! If you’d prefer to shorten this trail you can look into taking the Sant Joan Funicular. Show more

Exit through the Montserrat massif, from the side of Bruc-Collbató, starting at the vineyard-restaurant of the Vinya Nova and going up to the Miranda de San Jerónimo. Leave the car at the end of the large parking lot of La Vinya Nova and climb up the stairs to the entrance to the restaurant, where you take the Bruc path, but little by little (only about 200 meters) as you will leave it to catch the PR to the right that goes into the forest, to go to the same track a little further on, just where the French way begins. Continue along the French way, following the PR below the Camel de Sant Jeroni, where you will leave the PR that goes to the Canal de Migdia and Montgròs, to continue climbing to the Coll de les Pinasses. Once in the Coll de les Pinasses, you can continue straight ahead and go down a few meters to find the new path of San Jerónimo, or take the left to link a bit further without losing level (if we take this shortcut we do not pass through the hermitage of San Jerónimo, but we will pass on the way back) Already on the main road, leave the viewpoint of Mossèn Cinto on the left and a small esplanade to the right where there are many milestones and you only have a few steps left to reach top of Miranda de San Jerónimo. Continue along the main road (Camí Nou de Sant Jeroni) at the moment, passing through the hermitage of San Jerónimo, by the breaking of the French way, the breakout of the Pla dels Ocells and the break of the Camí del Pont, where you leave the main road (there is no indicator, just a landmark on the ground) The Road to the Bridge signposted with white marks, low direct to the parking lot of La Vinya Nova, from where you have left, you will only leave the path to reach us Bridge on a path that goes to the right and return to the path (there is no indicator but if a landmark and the very obvious path that goes down right to the torrent, but it is there).Show more

The route to the Montserrat Monastery begins in Collbató, a municipality in the province of Barcelona and continues along a forest path to where you will find a gap. The trail is well indicated at all times and has a lot of influx throughout the year. It is very common to be able to meet the typical mountain goat in the area, so be very attentive !. The entire route has spectacular views, although the panoramic view from the Mirador de la Cruz de Sant Miquel is especially recommended.Show more

Montserrat has to be one of the most visited locations in Catalonia offering many hiking routes for all levels. This particular route to Santa Maria Montserrat (Abbey of Montserrat) starts at the village of Collbato. From here the route straight away takes a climb upwards, once half way up, the path then runs along the edge of the mountain. After about the first hour into the route, the path then makes a sudden climb up to the final top. Once reaching the top and keeping to the right the path then takes you round to Santa Maria Montserrat. This route without taking any rest breaks takes about an hour and half from Collbato to Santa Maria Montserrat. Once at the Abby this particular route then goes back down to Collbate the same way as you come up. Overall: a great three and half hour hike up to one of the most famous spots in Catalonia.Show more

This route takes you to the region of Agulles and the Friars Encantats de Montserrat from Can Maçana. The itinerary begins in Can Massana, where you have to follow the GR7-2 towards Montserrat (east). Before arriving at Coll de Guirlo, you can turn left to visit the Hermitage of Sant Pau Vell. After passing the pass of La Portella, follow the path that leads to the refuge Vicenç Barbé. From here you will continue along the same path, to the rather flat west. Then you cross the Lloro torrent and the Prince's Pass, until you reach Coll de Porc. From this point you have to take the path that goes down to the northern wall of the Enchanted Friars. Soon after you will find the source of Coll de Porc. The road continues very narrow for hundreds of meters, at the foot of the rocky conglomerate wall that forms the Enchanted Friars. Once you cross the path that descends from the Col d'Agulles, you will continue downwards, in a rapid descent, until you find the GR7-2 again. Follow the road in the direction of Can Maçana (west), where you will arrive at the starting point, after passing below La Roca Foradada and the Cadireta.Show more

The route to the Montserrat Monastery from the Carretera de Montserrat car park is highly recommended for its wildest and most isolated part through forest and dirt roads with the mixture of human hands and the majesty of the Benedictine monastery itself.Show more
