Montseny is a mountain range west of the coastal hills north of Barcelona.

Features

Montseny roughly occupies a triangle created by the AP-7, C-17 and C-25 roads. It contains the highest mountains in the area south of the Pyrenees and dominates the valley south of Girona.

UNESCO designated Montseny a biosphere reserve in 1978.[1] The regional government designated it a natural park in 1987.

The highest peaks are made up of El Turó de l'Home (1,706 m), and Les Agudes (1,703 m). To the south is a plateau of La Calma. The highest peaks in this part of the Park are Puig Drau (1,344 m) and El Matagalls (1,697 m). In between is the Valley of the Tordera.

The Park is home to a wide variety of fauna from Mediterranean to alpine. There are also a large number of megalithic structures in the park.
