Hoja  El Bruc - Coll de Port...

The route starts between olive groves and some pine, but soon the vegetation opens and gives way to the bushes, in the sunniest areas, and oak forests in shady places. About Torrent dels Pallers, will see Aleppo pines (Pinus halepensis), holm oak (Quercus ilex) and dense thickets.

Although the area of ??the Frares Encantats is not the highest of the massif, its lush vegetation, mainly composed of shrubs of all kinds, makes its needles in the darkest and sinister mountain. Specifically, among the channels formed on the needles, forests can see yew (Taxus baccata), which only live in the little sunny areas.

In coming to Montserratians conglomerates inhabits oaks marten (marten), common blackbird (Parus caeruleus) and the rock sparrow (Petronia Petronia). Much closer to the channels in change, find Central European thrush species (Turdus Philomelus) and large warbler (Sylvia Borin).

At the highest levels of the itinerary can see some samples of Spanish ibex (Capra pyrenaica), protected species reintroduction, peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) and Bonelli's eagles (Hieraetus fasciatus). As for reptiles, we find species like the common gecko (Tarentola mauritanica) and vipers (Vipera latasti), who often live in sunny, rocky areas and shrubs.

We recommend approaching the road passing the foot of Frares Encantats , leaving the left the road crossing Montserrat that is marked with yellow markings. These cluster formations are so spectacular that each needle has its own name. Legend has it that some monks were punished for their trickery and so it was turned into statues dand stone.
