The Romanesque monastery of Sant Llorenç del Munt dates back to the 12th century and is at the summit of La Mola at 1,104 metres above sea level. From here visitors can enjoy fantastic views. The
monastery was home to a congregation of Benedictine monks until the mid-19th century when it was abandoned. The church and most of the construction of the monastery have been subject to various
archaeological excavations, and Barcelona Provincial Council has recently carried out extensive refurbishment work there.
In the course of the route visitors will learn about the massif’s natural environment, culture and landscape, and once at the summit they will be able to visit the Romanesque church and observe and identify
features in the landscape with the help of an orientation table.
