Sant Pere Vell Trail

This route joins the Farners hermitage with the hill of Far or Sant Pere Vell, situated between Sant Pere Cercada and Argimon. It passes through the observation point of the Abellera rock, can Canaleta and can Gorgals Nou. At this 587-metre summit, you will find the remains of a surveillance tower that dates back to the period when the Muslims were in power. The descent is via another route that passes through can Gorgals Vell until you join the outgoing track that will take you to Farners.

An ancient legend said that on top of this hill the old Sant Pere monastery, that was destroyed by the devil, was located. Specifically where he threw the stones, the Sant Pere Cercada monastery was built. This is why they gave it the name Sant Pere Vell.
