Macizo del Montseny lies in the Catalan pre-coastal mountains, over 3 districts: Osona, la Selva and eastern Vallès. It comprises materials of highly diverse origin. Three big mountainous groups make up the massif: Turó de l’Home (1,706 m) and Les Agudes (1,703 m) , Matagalls (1,697 m) and Pla de la Calma. The abrupt relief, that contrasts with the mountains and valley cut by streams, the leafiness of the forests, give rise to a spectacular and exceptionally stunning landscape.
