Barcelona Landscapes - L'Obac - Half Day
The Natural Park of Sant Llorenç del Munt i l'Obac is especially known for its Romanesque sanctuary and the long road on the ridge. On this route we can enjoy this wonderful Mediterranean mountains and forests. An easy ridge route leads to Collet Estret and from there we will go up to the scenic rock Castellsapera (939 m). Then we will follow the remains of the ancient road that connected Barcelona with Manresa. We will learn about the ambush spots where the legendary Capablanca bandit acted in the 17th century. Finally, we will visit the dizzying Roca Salvatge and look at the endless surrounding lowlands. A great hiking experience near the big city!
