Just 45 minutes from Barcelona you will discover the forests and corners of Montnegre i el Corredor. You will start the hiking in Vallgorguina’s town where we will walk until the Font d’en Nel, we will explore the native fauna and vegetation of this area. Once you have drunk water and recharged energy, you will head towards the Dolmen.
The Dolmen is at an altitude of 328m, crowning a hill located at kilometre 4.1 of the forest track that goes from the C-61 in the Corredor Sanctuary. It is a megalithic construction of 7 vertically nailed slabs on top of which is the cover stone. This structure has never been scientifically excavated or documented, leaving some uncertainties about its original origin, shape, and location.
In short, you will discover the surroundings of Vallgorguina, with a route with a low slope and accessible to all, 5 km of circular route.
The Dolmen de la Pedra Gentil itinerary will take us to know, through its gentle and gentle relief, some of the oldest settlements in the Corredor Mountain Range. It is a pleasant excursion, without complications, signposted as a local path (SL-C 71) that runs through the park’s tracks and paths.
Along the route, the colours, all year green, are predominant in the landscape. More than 95% of the Park’s surface is forestry. This will also allow you to discover the different types of persistent leaf forests that this relief rounded by erosion hides.
The Pedra Gentil dolmen, the architectural complex of Santa Eulàlia de Tapioles and the farmhouses of Can Pradell de la Serra and Can Clarens are the main architectural elements of the route, which shows the life and human occupation of the Corredor side.
The tour will end at the Museum of the Forest and the Peasantry. The museum’s collection is divided into two floors that give value to the world of forest, nature and agriculture.
The ground floor is dedicated to agriculture: life and values in the countryside, the tools used and technical advances, cereals and life. The first floor focuses on the forest and nature: exploitation and trades (charcoal, peelers, lumberjack), vegetation, fauna and current uses (hiking)
