This route is located on the Montsant mountain range, a holy mountain that has been a place of isolation and peace for hermits for centuries. That’s why we can find so many chapels hidden between their mountains.
The proposed hike will take us to the most ancient one, Sant Bartomeu, dated back to the 12th century and surrounded by a astonishing natural beauty, with intriguing, evocative mountains that are unforgetable.
On route, we will come across the Montsant river and the pools of Les Cadolles Fondes, native forests, cliffs and a magnificent topography carved out by time and climate. This hike will capture your imagination.
We will depart from Ulldemolins, a village famous for its omelettes and its pastries. From there we will move on to the start point of our hike, in the Sant Antoni chapel of Ulldemolins.
Following the path up to the mountain pass and enjoying the surrounding landscape we will come to the Montsant river which we weave across throughout our hike.
Taking advantage of a little height, we will get to see the river from above, and enjoy ashtonishing views of the Cadolles Fondes, rock formations and pools that the river has carved on its journey towards the sea. In good weather we can even take a dip to refresh ourselves!
From there we will walk to the tibetan bridge to cross the river once again, and arrive at the chapel, a wonderful viewpoint looking over the Montsant mountains. Stones and rock formations that will leave us amazed. There we will enjoy a picnic to restore our energy and begin our descent back to our start point in Ulldemolins.
*We can do this hike as a loop, as a whole day hike. The skill and fitness level required is higher as the way back is through exposed windy spots and the terrain is more difficult (higher slope). Dont hesitate to ask you are interested.
