The route to the Monastery of Montserrat begins in Collbató, a municipality in the province of Barcelona, and continues along a forestal path to where you will find a slope. The trail is well indicated at all times and is very busy throughout the year. The route begins in Collbató and continues towards the Mare de Déu de la Salut Hermitage that dates from the second half of the 19th century, has its origin in the old medieval church of Santa Maria known since the 18th century as Santa María de health. The hermit was destroyed during the Civil War of 1936-39 and was rebuilt again after the war. Then you climb to a height of 720 meters above sea level until you reach the monastery of Santa María de Montserrat, a Benedictine abbey located on the mountain of Montserrat. Legend has it that they found the image of the Virgin of Montserrat around the year 880. Starting the cult of La Moreneta, which materialized in the first four hermitages in the 9th century: Santa María, San Acisclo, San Pedro, and San Martín. From here the descent back to Collbató begins, passing by the Cross of San Miguel, a monument from 1962, the work of Josep M. Subirachs and dedicated to San Miguel, Patron of Montserrat. On the cross, the meaning of the name of the archangel Saint Michael, which means "Who is like God?" Is engraved in several languages. It is very common to find the typical mountain goat of 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

Pedraforca is one of the most famous and beautiful mountains in Catalonia, located in the Sierra del Cadí, within the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park. This route is very popular among Catalan culture and is known as the forked mountain since its two peaks protrude like gallows. You will pass through a beautiful forest, cross a hill and climb a rocky section through the Collado del verdet. You can take good photos from the lower pollegó of Pedraforca. The views are fantastic and unforgettable. If you plan to hike or climb the steepest parts, a helmet is recommended.Show more

Hiking route through the Garraf Natural Park. The route that we are going to relate below does not require a car. We can do it perfectly using the R2 line commuter trains that connect Barcelona with Sant Vicenç de Calders with stops that are close to the Garraf natural park such as Castelldefels, Garraf and Sitges. The path goes along the path of the viewpoints making an ascending zigzag until it reaches the huge quarry that breaks the unspoiled nature of the Catalan coastal mountain range. Throughout the Garraf natural park there are hundreds of cavities, most of them vertical and of various dimensions that will delight speologists. As hikers, we must walk with special attention in certain areas and not deviate from the indicated path (although it is difficult to find it sometimes), especially in the area near La Morella and the path that connects Pla d'en Querol with Vallgrassa. Views of the Mediterranean landscape from the Garraf observatory. Vallgrassa, a curious experimental arts center that is closed during the week and I was not able to visit this time. From Vallgrassa, several options are open to us: follow the GR-92 inside the Garraf natural park or take the PR C-37 that takes the straight path in the direction of the sea again.Show more
