The Montseny massif is both a natural park and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It is crowned by peaks such as the Turó de l’Home (1,706 metres) or Matagalls (1,697 metres). It is also home to a wealth of natural and cultural heritage.
The Montseny massif, natural park and part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves, contains part of the regions of Osona, Selva and Vallès Oriental.
It is formed by the peaks of Turó de l'Home (1,706 metres), Les Agudes (1,703 metres), El Matagalls (1,697 metres) and the plain Pla de la Calma (Mount Drau, 1,344 metres). It is crossed by the Congost, Tordera and Riera Major rivers. A combination that means that the vegetation is extremely lush and is home to an abundance of wildlife.
Among the cultural heritage, it is worth highlighting the megalithic constructions in the Arca mountain range, the Roman villa of Can Terrers, the many mediaeval churches, the numerous castles, the fortified houses of Bellver and La Sala, the village of Tagamanent and the Sant Segimon hermitage.
The beauty and diversity of the landscapes of the Montseny Massif Natural Park have inspired numerous artists, writers and intellectuals and every year they attract around two million visitors.
