The plan Let’s hike up together to this mythical summit of “El Montseny”. It’s considered one of the 100 essential peaks by the FEEC (Catalan Hiking Federation): "100 CIMS". This route offers a big variety of landscapes. We’ll walk through a beautiful beech forest but also through meadows and pasture lands with wonderful views of the Pyrenees and its surroundings. We’ll find some interesting vestiges such as an old ice well or the Sant Segimon sanctuary, which will give us valuable information about the past life of these mountains and of their inhabitants. We will also visit the Sant Miquel dels Barretons chapel, in which, according to the legend, “if you leave your hat inside, it will cure all your headaches”. We’ll have to try😊 !
