El Brull Aiguafreda de Dalt Riera del Martinet Ecogranja Cingles del Bertí Can Tres Quarts Terrissos vermells Turó de Tagamanent Pla de la Calma Vall d'Avencó Dòlmens de Can Serra

Turó de Tagamanent

The air is purer at an altitude of 1,506 metres, filling your lungs and cleansing your spirit. This is one of the peaks in the Montseny Natural Park and is an easy route to do with children. You can climb it from Figaró and then descend at a slower pace, stopping on the way to visit the chapel of Sant Cristòfol and its attractive natural surroundings.

The turó is located in the municipality of Tagamanent, in the Vallès Oriental region. It is crowned by Tagamanent Castle, known to date back to at least the year 945. The castle was ruled by the Counts of Barcelona.

Balcó de Can Tres Quarts

After the short, steep climb, the reward that awaits you is arriving at Can Tres Quarts and seeing the wonderful views it offers. You can also visit the nearby Font de Can Tres Quarts and the mysterious drawing engraved on one side.

Can Tres Quarts is a structure overlooking the cliffs in Pla de la Garga, within the municipal districts of Centelles and Sant Martí de Centelles. It is an enclosed structure set around a courtyard.

Terrissos vermells

Can you imagine seeing red earth in contrast with the lush green vegetation and the blue sky? This part of Cingles de Bertí gets its name from the characteristic colour of its red sandstone. The rounded textures are the perfect background for taking a picture as a souvenir.

The Cingles de Bertí cliffs are formed by limestone materials with layers featuring attractive cornices and drops of hundreds of metres. The Triassic materials are former ocean floors raised following the Alpine orogeny.

Cingles del Bertí

A series of mountain peaks between Moianès and Vallès containing a wealth of typically Mediterranean flora and fauna. One of the most emblematic peaks is Sant Miquel del Fai, where, if you are patient, you may see eagles, eagle owls and hawks.

A series of cliffs and reliefs that forms part of the Serralada Prelitoral range and separates the plateau of Moianès from the Vallès trough. It is named after the parish of Sant Pere de Bertí, located in the central part of this area.

Pla de la Calma

This is a long, even trail for enjoying a relaxing walk over a couple of hours, taking in the impressive views. It is close to Casa Museu L’Agustí, which describes what rural life was like in the 19th century, including curious details such as the smells of a traditional farmhouse.

Pla de la Calma is a plateau in the westernmost part of the Montseny Massif. The vast expanse of Pla de la Calma includes some parts of the municipalities of Figaró, Tagamanent, Sant Pere de Vilamajor, La Garriga i Cànoves and Samalús.

Riera del Martinet

Aiguafreda stands on the banks of Martinet stream, which rises in the Montseny Massif and flows into the River Congost. You can follow it through the village along an easy, fairly even path and enjoy the relaxing sound of the water and the shade of the trees.

El Brull

A small township that joins together three neighbourhoods set far apart from each other in Montseny Nature Reserve. Sant Martí del Brull, Sant Jaume de Viladrover and Sant Cristòfol de la Castanya. Each has its own parish church, all three Romanesque and very well conserved.

Avencó Valley

The Avencó Valley is considered one of the most interesting in Catalonia from a geological perspective. Head into the Montseny Massif among spectacular oaks by the Avencó stream to discover its springs and old farmhouses.... A journey full of history.

The Can Serra Dolmens

The Can Serra dolmens, between Aiguafreda and El Brull, date from the end of the Neolithic period, around the second millennium BC. They are megalithic tombs in which corpses were interred surrounded by their weapons and some offerings. The great Aiguafreda Dolmen is located within the property of Can Brull in Aiguafreda. It is formed by four large vertical slabs and one horizontal in the form of a mausoleum and it was a funerary monument. Incidentally, did you know that the word dolmen originates from the Breton expression 'tol men', which means 'stone table'?

Aiguafreda de Dalt

The town centre of Aiguadfreda was once formed by the church, the vicarage and some farmhouses, but it lost its status as a parish in favour of Aiguafreda de Baix at the end of the sixteenth century. Aiguafreda de Dalt can also be accessed by car: it is an easy and pleasant excursion, suitable for children, which will enable you to discover the Martinet Valley. Throughout the route you will find different information panels that will help you to recognise the flora and fauna of the environment. Wet and cool by the stream and drier when we head further up.
