Do you want to walk quietly in the surrounding nature of Matadepera? Or maybe you prefer a bike route?
And in the afternoon, a cultural route or play some golf?
A proposal to spend a day full of activities in Matadepera!
We propose you to start the day taking the Route of tla Pedra Seca, a leisurely walk that will allow you to get to know the beautiful natural environment of Matadepera and the heritage that has been preserved there, linked to agriculture and the use of forest resources.
Departure and arrival point: Mas de Can Solà del Racó (now, Masia La Tartana)
Approximate duration: 1h 20 min.
Distance: 3.8 Km
You will find all the information here.
We will leave the Mas de Can Solà del Racó (now calles Masia La Tartana) and pass by the Font de la Tartana, a fountain covered by a vault, with benches next to it and surrounded by red rocks. Considering that this is a circular route, on the way back you can stop for a moment to rest in this pleasant space.
What can’t you miss on this route?
La Font de la Tartana
The walls and the stone beams: which allow us to glimpse the agricultural past of the territory.
The vegetation: oaks and white pine forest.
The dry-stone huts: shelters for farmers and storage places for agricultural tools and spices.
The lime kilns (Forn d ‘En Ton and Forn d ‘en Corcola): you will find explanatory panels to know the uses and history of these kilns.
You will find the tracks of the route on this link.

For the most daring, we propose a mountain bike route! This is the route of the Masies de Llevant (Farmhouses of the East).

Would you like to make a route to discover the cultural and historical heritage of Matadepera? The route “del Camí Ral a l’estiueig” will allow you to discover the evolution of Matadepera: from the formation of the urban center of Camí Ral (which connected Barcelona to Manresa) to the impact of summer tourism. This route crosses the city center and you can see: the Hostal de la Marieta (built in 1769); the Plaça de Cal Baldiró (a space that was a dance and theatre hall that welcomed the inhabitants who polarized the social and political life of Matadepera); the church, the bell tower and the presbytery, and Ca l ‘Aldavert (work of the modernist architect Bonaventura Bassegoda, between 1890 and 1897, and where the poet Àngel Guimerà spent some summers). Oh! Make sure to visit some local shops!
You can find detailed information about the route here.
