The Montseny Mountain

The Montseny mountain boasts of having some of the most splendid landscapes, with Mediterranean and Central European-like forests, which coexist with the cities.

Its universally recognized and remarkable biodiversity and cultural heritage, which mankind has created and preserved over the time, have been an exceptional source of inspiration to artists, intellectuals and scientists, unveiling the visitors´ emotions as well.

Other places of interest:

- The Ice Wells: where the snow from the mountain was stored to be available throughout the year. The Can Cuch ice well, located to the west of the hill, still preserves, in good condition, the domed roof climbing to the Sui and to the Bessa pit.

- The modernist routes of Cardedeu and La Garriga: Within half an hour´s drive from Can Cuch, these two small towns used to be the favourite summer havens of the Barcelona bourgeoisie at the beginning of the 20th century. The perfectly conserved modernist-style villas are real architectural jewels.

- The Museum-Archive Tomás Balvey in Cardedeu: Located in one of the first summer residences of the town (1848), the museum hosts one of the oldest pharmacies of Catalonia and its original furniture of 1812. There is also an extensive collection of ethnographic, architectural and decorative elements, a botanical garden and a vast archive of scrolls from periods going from the tenth to the fourteenth century.

- The Dolmens of Sierra del Arca: In the Sierra del Arca, between the municipalities of El Brull and Aiguafreda (40 minutes´ drive from Can Cuch), there are a dozen hidden dolmens, among which the Great Dolmen of Aiguafreda stands above all for its relevant size and mint condition.

- The Iberian village of Samalus: Situated within the Canoves and Samalus municipal boundaries, 20 minutes´ drive from Can Cuch, this imposing Iberian settlement was inhabited for more than four centuries. Two walls and nine towers have been found so far, although the excavation works have not yet been finished.

- The Roman Villa of Can Terres: Sited at the entrance of La Garriga, the remains of the Roman villa and the baths of Can Terres date back to the first century. For more than 700 years, this was an important Roman exploitation dedicated to vineyards and olive groves.
