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.

  • Permitting the day you will have spectacular views and inflate you to take pictures. Recommended, but the road should improve
    View original
  • Access might be a bit long, more than expected, but the views are truly breathtaking.

  • It is worth making the road curves to enjoy the views. Once above puees visit the sanctuary and the room where stayed Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer for a time and where he wrote the "Canigou". To me em was surprised to find a huge restaurant past up, because when you see the road you do not know there is the infrastructure there assembled. But even rooms for rent and food in the restaurant is very good. I emphasize the snails and risotto.

  • Preciosas vistas
  • Great Bike ascent! Scenic views
  • Had never happened so afraid to get to a place. Earned the penalty, but there I think to come back ever again.

  • A preciòs site with unique views in 360 degrees. The restaurant is also very good although a bit pricey

  • 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 ;-)
