The Views from Montcau’s Hillside

Any time I need to exercise and clear up my mind, I take my camera and wander. I decided to climb Montcau’s Peak. For some reason, I always miss the change to go there, even though it is really close to my home.

Montcau is the second highest peak in the Sant Llorenç del Munt i l’Obac Natural Park. It is located in the Catalonian coastal mountain range and it is close to Barcelona. From the Peak, you have excellent views and when the weather is nice, it is possible to see most of the Catalan country.

The picture, as you can see here, it is not from the Peak. I took it from the hillside, but even from this height, it is possible to see almost the entire Bages region, a flat land full of small villages with the capital Manresa, on the left side of the picture.

In the background, almost hidden by the clouds, you can see the Pyrenees, a mighty barrier between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe.

Do not forget to download your free wallpaper of this photo, it available in many different resolutions as always!
