Via Natural

We are the Via Natural, the “Natural Way” to enjoy Montseny by public transport, by bicycle or on foot.

Ours is a new centre for nature activities, tourist services and information about Montseny Natural Park.

Forget your car! We provide easy access to the natural areas in Baix Montseny and Montseny Natural Park, minimising CO2 emissions.

Montseny Via Natural is a service provided by Santa Maria de Palautordera local authority.



The Massif of Montseny provides a lovely setting for Santa Maria de Palautordera. This 1,708-metre mountain helps to shape the very identity of those who live in its foothills, in an area known as Baix Montseny.

Montseny Natural Park is a unique natural site due to its rich biodiversity and the cultural footprint that humanity has created here over the years. UNESCO declared the site a Biosphere Reserve in 1978 This is, without doubt, an extraordinary place, so please enjoy it to the full, and responsibly.
