Matagalls - Sant Segimon

A little bit of biosfere reserve

The year 1978, UNESCO declared the Montseny massif a Biosphere Reserve. Its natural and landscape richness is undeniable.

Matagalls is one of its highlights. Its wild northern slope is home to forests rich in biodiversity and contains the old monastery of Sant Segimon, halfway up on the mountain. At its foot are old farmhouses such as La Sala, the ancestral home of the famous bandit Serrallonga, sentenced to death by hanging in 1634, and from then source for many famous legends.

We'll find magnificent specimens of chestnut, very close to the chapel of Mare de Déu de l'Erola. And then we'll return to our usual places, thinking that this nature is probably part of our home, after all.
