Portes del Montseny is an area of varied appearance from the flat to the heights. El Montseny Natural Park preserves the natural and cultural values and, dominated by the massif that gives it its name, offers a wealth of varied landscapes. Some hills are crowned with castles, such as Centelles, Tona and Taradell. The Congost River, guarded by El Montseny and the Bertí scarps, makes its way across the plain to the sea, and is surrounded by ancient steep paths or camins de grau, today used by hikers. This was one of the first parts of Catalonia in which the Romanesque appeared, as reflected in the churches of Sant Martí del Brull, Santa Eugènia de Berga, Sant Genís de Taradell, Sant Quirze de Subiradells, Sant Jaume de Viladrover and Santa Maria de Seva.
This museum site in the municipality of Tona, Osona, features archaeological remains from prehistory to the medieval and modern era. Visitors may either come on their own or take a guided visit. The centre offers diverse activities associated with archaeology.
Both the heritage and the landscape can be enjoyed on a trail that runs from Balenyà to Sant Martí de Centelles, in Osona, and through the historical centre of Centelles, the main town of what used to be a barony in the Middle Ages.
This via at Portes del Montseny affords superb views in all directions: the plain of Vic, Tona Castle, the Eastern Pyrenees, Les Guilleries and Collsacabra, the Montseny massif, Tagamanent Castle, and the Bertí scarps.
