The Bruc – Sant Pau Vell

El Bruc - Sant Pau Vell
The Bruc – Sant Pau Vell

Along the route will happen between pinewoods of pine carrasco, pines negrales and olivos. Shortly after we leave step to zones arbustivas with ginebra and heath, romero and Matabou, and the last stretch a zone with encinar very near of Sant Pau Vell. Walking in silence will see quite a lot of small birds.

To many of the places that cross were found traces of the step of the primitive man, some pieces of which will be able to find them in a room enabled by the City council of The Bruc. The called Megalith of the Diablera and the Cova Covered is an archaeologic group that shows that the place was inhabited by hunters and recolectores of the Age of Bronze.

The ruins of the church of Sant Pau Vell, that heave on a salient rocky, remember that in this place found one of the designated «Five Castles of Montserrat«. Sant Pau Vell quotes in documents of the year 1084. What see are the rests of a church of the 14th century (at present in phase of reconstruction) provista of two apses and covers with a vault of half point (today almost missing). To his around guess the walls of the Castle.

In the highest point of the aldea to 856 metres find traces of an ancient tower of defence, as well as a fragment of wall built by means of the technician «opus spicatum».
