This summit is one of the Emblematic Summits of Catalonia.The Mare de Déu del Mont shrine is very popular, its name meaning Mother of God of the Mountain. It has been often mentioned in Catalan literature, having been referred to as Porta del Pirineu, meaning "the Gate of the Pyrenees", among other epithets.

  • One of the tours most beautiful that can be made by La Garrotxa, climbed from Beuda, a good kicked but is amazing, beautiful landscapes, visits to precincts, farmhouses, and the end point, the top of the mountain where is the Santuari is something indescribable, the views are spectacular, there are few places of such beauty. Do not fail to visit the ruins of the monastery of Sant Llorenç de Sous, gorgeous. In short a day like no other

  • The shrine is at the top of the Serra del Mont, the views in one day clear are wonderful, from the Pyrenees with the massif of the Canigou, the Garrotxa i the coast from the Bay of Roses, the Medes, Montseny etc. A true spectacle. You have to be careful with the road, it is very narrow and with many curves, must be circular with moderation, but it is worth much.

  • Permitting the day you will have spectacular views and inflate you to take pictures. Recommended, but the road should improve

  • Super vantage point, about 1175 metres altitude, above it has a restaurant in the complex of a church. A very beautiful building. Very much recommended! Attention, the way up has it all! Very winding road, very narrow. People with fear of heights should not sit at the wheel ;-)
