Now more than ever, it is time to connect with nature and to live and enjoy Malgrat de Mar in a different way.
As you well know, due to the new restrictions implemented by the Generalitat of Catalonia to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections, municipal confinement has been decreed and sports spaces and gyms have been closed, which is the reason why today we want to propose you a route that will help you get in shape because Malgrat de Mar is a giant outdoor gym.
Now is the time to enjoy our fantastic beaches, the paths that exist between our fields, and the routes to discover which you will find in the different natural spaces that surround us.
Today the route that we want to propose is the route of “Del Turó d’en Serra y las Minas de Can Palomeres“. This route, of medium difficulty due to the unevenness that must be overcome in a short space, will take you to discover the mining past of our town and contemplate the wonderful views from the top of “Turó d’en Serra”. While doing this route, you will be able to see the entrances of the old mines, located on the northern side of Malgrat, but remember: entering is not allowed, it can be dangerous.
This route has a length of 5.60 km, a maximum slope of 229 meters and on average you can do it in about 3 hours.
To be able to do this route properly, it is advisable to wear suitable footwear. You will need basic gear, either for hiking or mountain climbing. Focus on your hiking footwear even though some hikers enjoy lightweight footwear, try to choose proper footwear that will support your ankles, such as over-the-ankle boots. Boots should be comfortable.
As for clothing, it may vary depending on the time of year, but the best thing is that it is comfortable and breathable and, if possible, we recommend always wearing long pants to avoid bushes and different plants that may disturb you during the path.
So now you know, put on your shoes and come to discover this fascinating Malgrat de Mar route.
