Old hemitages of the Serra de Monsant

 The shaded part of the Natural Park of Sierra de Montsant includes a wetland of lush forests and numerous sources, hiding places of extraordinary natural beauty and spectacular gorge Fraguerau, surrounded by rocks and vertical walls of whimsical forms. We also discovered how isolated hermitages of Santa Magdalena, San Antonio and Santa Barbara and the more distant in time and space. Ulldemolins The route begins at the foot of the C-242 and between Albarca Bellaguarda (via binding with the N-420 towards making Falset), from where to go for the wide paved path that makes to Santa Magdalena. To access this track or along the sanctuary of Loreto and the pool or from the church. You pass the bridge over the small river and, later, after a rise, there is a fork (3.2 miles). Take the road on the left, in 250 meters, leads to the chapel of St. Mary Magdalene, and sixteenth-century Renaissance style. It is an ancient place of worship that contains multiple sources.
