Your day trip begins in the gorgeous and historic village of La Garriga, one of the most emblematic Modernist architecture heritages in Catalonia. La Garriga is located within the Natural Park of Montseny, just 50 min away from Barcelona capital city.
The Montseny massif, declared a Nature Reserve in 1978 and a World Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO covers an area of 30,120 hectares. The Montseny is the largest and highest massif of the Pre-littoral mountain range and comprises three mountain areas: the Turó de l’Home crest (1,706 m) and Les Agudes (1,703 m), the Matagalls (1,697 m) and the Pla de la Calma (1,344 m).
Beyond the environmental and ecological matters, Montseny is a massif of great historic-cultural value, as human activity has played an important role in molding the landscape, full of masias, the most common architectural element of this area.
We will meet at the train station and after a short welcome meeting, we encourage you to perform a self guided walking tour to admire the historical Modernist architecture through the old town. We provide all the necessary information to take the most of your walking tour so you don’t miss anything out.
