Romance hermitages of Montserrat

The Hermitage of Sant Jaume of the 12th century, already appears quoted in 1104, in a document in that the owners give it to the Monastery of Santa Cecilia of Montserrat. It is enough very conserved so much intern like externamente.

The Hermitage of Sant Esteve of Marganell is a clear exponent of the rural romance art. The primitive construction is of the 13th century, of an alone ship, where stands out an apse semicircular, smooth and without window. It had main altar, lateral chapels and a small heart.

Saint Cristóbal is a hermitage of the S. XI, the frontal part was lengthened during the S. XVII. Each Sunday realise masses and can contemplate the good conservation of the interior.

Along the route will see a big diversity of landscapes. We go through rich zones in white pine, encinas, oaks and bushes variants like lentisco or esparraguera. We see also, some torrents with the vegetation more ufana.

It is destacable the landscape modelado by the hand of the man, with bucólicos fields of cereals of barley and avena very showy in the warmest period.

In reference to the fauna, walking by the itinerary, will see some tórtola, the always curious blackbird and numerous torcaces in zones arboladas. The always present squirrel, but hid, leaves his trace with pineapples in the middle of the way.
