Pista el Lagar
Cami de Cavalis is a historical path. Many occupants of the island had to keep a close eye on this island. That is why they continuously traveled around the island with horses, which has now become a beautiful and famous path: the Cami de Cavalis. It is widely accepted that the Camí de Cavalls was built in order to connect the watchtowers, fortresses and cannons distributed along the coast of the island and to make the transport of troops and artillery easier. However, the date of its origin is not so clear. The most accepted theory attributes it is the French invaders during the different periods they lived in the island, but according to some studies, it could have been created in the 14th century. Since its original function was the defence and the control of the island, it was patrolled by soldiers mounted on Menorquin horses, hence the word cavalls (meaning "horses" in Catalan) in the name of the path. The path is divided in 20 different stages, each of them between 5 and 14 km. All the start and arrival points can be gained access to by road traffic, making possible to cover only one or some stages of the path at a time.
CPB (Costa / Paisatges Barcelona): Route 12
This is a long, advanced-level ride, taking in the incredible pilgrimage location of Montserrat, famous in Catalonia for its amazing geological shapes, and its monastery. Every autumn, cyclists from all over Barcelona ride to the top on the same day for a cyclists’ blessing, from the Abbot of the Monastery. Before Montserrat the ride climbs straight out of Terrassa, then after Montserrat this route continues on to climb the Coll d’Estenalles, which is even longer and higher than the climb up to Montserrat. This is a day of memorable views of the geology and heritage of the Montserrat and Sant Llorenç del Munt Natural Parks, with a large climb in each.
You will find this route and many more in Catalonia, on the Catalan Tourism Board’s map, here: http://act.gencat.cat/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Mapa-guia-Rutes-ENG-baixa.pdf
