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.

  • 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.

  • After a small car journey, you are before a grandiose landscape: a view of the Mediterranean, the mountains, the Lakes. It's totally amazing. To stop at the restaurant which allows you to eat in the face of this beautiful landscape. For nothing to spoil the meals are excellent and served with a smile. A but not touristy place to discover!

  • 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 ;-)
