Montsant Mountain Range
Distance from L’Hospitalet de l’Infant: 60 km
Type of activity: hiking
Time required: whole day

This mountain range is compact, surrounded by ragged cliffs formed during the Oligocene period. Small villages are nestled against its foothills. The central part is an imposing mountainous kingdom. To reach it, you must choose a grau, i.e. one of the passes which allow you to scale the cliffs. Some of them are quite easy and broad, as they were once used as pack-horse trails to get from one village to another, whereas others are just wide enough to pass in single file. Some of them are heart-stoppingly narrow, just clinging to the hillside. It’s well worth the effort, though: After mastering the steep ascents you will be rewarded with magnificent views over the mountain range and valleys.
