The plan A beautiful hike in the Montseny Natural Park, where we'll walk among beautiful trees and see old farmhouses of the area, with views of the valleys and mountains that surround us, at the foot of el Matagalls.
Starting from the bucolic village of Viladrau, we'll walk along paths that will get us to another dimension where we’ll enjoy the fantastic seasonal colours of the trees. We'll enjoy the landscape offered by the colored beeches and the Merli chestnut grove, a beautiful forest with monumental chestnut trees along the way, some of them more than 500 years old!
