Just about 1 hour outside of Barcelona rises mountains with a monestary at the peak. This truly odd geographical formation resembles a large African antnest setting upon a table top. The roads are in great condition and offer specatacular views and curves for all skill levels. Don pass up the tram to the very top putting you at the highest point as far as your eyes can see!!!
My favorite attraction on the Eastern side of Spain!!!
A long days trip but worth it, very nice scenery and photo-spots, urban area around Heidelberg can show heavy traffic. Lots of other bikers and very civilized drivers all around.
Watch out for most gas stations being closed on weekends or closing early during the week days. Total trip distance hovers around 400km.
