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.
