    It is worth approaching the Pi of the Xandri on the road that goes from Sant Cugat to the Hermitage of Sant Medir. A tree of more than 23 m tall and about 230 years of life which was savagely attacked in 1997 when some vandals tried to cut it, from this bracing here to recover it. A great symbol in Catalunya
