Peak of Montagut
This is one of the highest points in the sea Gavarres at 265 m in height and it has good views.
This is one of the oldest pieces of evidence of human settlement in the Valle de Bell-lloc. The Montagut dolmen is located in a dominant position with a great panoramic view. Only three slabs of this megalithic monument remain, one of which has an engraving in the form of a cross that was made at a later date to Christianise it.
Built in the 11th and 12th centuries, this belonged to the Alemany family until 1276 when it was sold to the Bishop of Girona. After passing through various, hands, the French troops dynamited it in 1812 during the Peninsular War. Since then, it has gradually fallen into decay. It has a rectangular floorplan and consists of two concentric structures. In the central part, there is a wall of some 10 m that must have been part of the keep. Of the external structure, you can see one of the two towers that must have guarded the entrance, where you can see the rectangular merlons and arrowslits. We recommend staying out of it owing to its precarious and dangerous state of repair.
