In this route through Maresme we will visit the sites of the Foradada Vallromanes rock and the Mirador de la Cornisa, so we recommend you to bring prepared food, drinks for the road and good hiking shoes. In addition, this plan is ideal to do it in the afternoon, as it includes a walk through the forest and a viewpoint to enjoy the beautiful views of the Maresme.

To begin with, we will be delighted by the wonderful environment of the Vallromanes forest, discovering the“Cova de la Foradada“: a curious stone with a central hole that attracts many curious people every weekend.

We finally ended up relaxing on one of the benches at the Mirador de la Cornisa, while appreciating the incredible views of the illuminated maritime villages and taking a look at the panoramic views of the town.

Vallromanes Foradada Rock

This curious rock is located in the Serralada Litoral park and is one of the oldest and most representative archaeological remains of the strip.

Why visit a rock in the middle of the forest? There is a very interesting reason. Neolithic buildings were mostly made of stones, which made them a great engineering challenge for the time, so finding such an ancient rock in perfect condition is really amazing. And if it were only this rock, during this hiking route it is likely to find remains of monoliths, dolmens and other legacies of a few centuries ago.

That is why the route that takes us to the Cova de la Foradada, can be an incredible outdoor experience surrounded by history and adventure, to share with groups of friends, enjoy with family or with your partner.
