A tour of the hermitages in the area of Tebes. This is an opportunity to reach the areas surrounding the hermitages of Sant Jaume and Santa Caterina. The Miranda of Santa Magdalena  gives us a good view of the western part of the mountain, hidden from the Monastery. The seclusion of Santa Magdalena and the dizzy Steps of Jacob are in stark contrast to the comfortable new path of St. Jeroni. A visit to the Pla dels Ocells and the descent through the picturesque Pas dels Francesos, formerly known as the Strait of Gibraltar, end this hike around the areas above the Monastery.

Contents of the excursion:

Throughout the hike you will receive a brief explanation on botany, geology, the history of the hermits and the main “needles” and rocks that we will encounter. At the end of the excursion, the visitor will have acquired a general knowledge of the natural and cultural environment of the mountain of Montserrat.
