Just 45 minutes from Barcelona we will discover the forests and corners of Montnegre and Corredor Park. We will start the trekking in the town of Vallgorguina where we will go to the Font d’en Nel. Once you have drunk water and recharge your energy, you will head towards the Gentile Stone Dolmen.
The Gentile Stone Dolmen is located at an altitude of 328m. It is a megalithic construction of 7 vertically nailed slabs on top of which is the roof stone. This structure has never been excavated or scientifically documented, leaving some uncertainties about its original origin, shape, and location.
You will discover the surroundings of Vallgorguina, with a route with a low slope and accessible to all, 6 km of the circular route. It is a pleasant, uncomplicated excursion, marked as a local trail (SL-C 71) that runs along the Park’s tracks and paths.
Throughout the route, the colours, all year green, are predominant in the landscape. More than 95% of the area of the Park is forested. This will also allow us to discover the different types of persistent leaf forests that this relief rounded by erosion hides.
The Dolmen, Santa Eulàlia de Tapioles and the farmhouses of Can Pradell de la Serra and Can Clarens are the main architectural elements of the route, showing the life and human occupation of the Corredor slope.
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 the forest, nature and agriculture.
The ground floor is dedicated to agriculture: life and values in the field, 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)
