Coastal mountains, very nearby Barcelona.

Old chapel of Sant MateuAt the gateway to the great capital of Barcelona one finds some low level mountains, which since antiquity have largely been humanized, though which conceal within, extensive pine woods, old Iberian cities, Roman villas, Medieval watch-towers, little hermitages and charming hideaways. Can Riera at Sant MateuRecover from the efforts and exertions of “having to see everything”, just 30 minutes from the big city! Take a break during your stay in Barcelona to breathe in a little country air and enjoy the scenery!

I propose a short and pleasant 2 hour route around these places, giving one an idea of quite how near the city nature is found.

Half-day return excursion, starting off from your accommodation point.
