Montserrat

Journey towards the peaks of Montserrat and rise through the twisty roads to the famous Monastery and incredible views over Catalunya.

Fast flowing curves rising to the peaks of Montserrat

Seen from afar, the massif is comprised of three main peaks. This, along with the formation of many peaks, is where its name comes from, ‘serrat’ meaning serrated saw. The massif can be reached in less than an hour but you can enjoy the views and the sites of the mountain looming from just outside Barcelona. Many routes can take you there and can be linked to a longer days riding. Once on the massif enjoy the twisty roads, enough of them to be able to raise and fall on different routes. The famous Monastery at the top is well worth a visit and a nice break on the ride.
