🥾 The route starts at the town of Centelles towards the first objective of the day, the peak known as Morro de Porc (964m). This summit offers privileged views of the entrance to the Montseny Natural Park, the valley formed by the river Congost and the Vic plain in the distance, among others.
After this ascent, we'll only have to go flattening and going down, discovering the wonders that this mountain range hides, starting with the Romanesque castle of Castellcir or de la Popa.
We'll continue our route to go find the castle of Centelles, which is recognized as one of the most important examples of medieval and modern fortifications in Spain.
🍻 To end the day the best way possible, after the walk we'll go together to have a drink and eat something (optional)
