Last Summer, in the middle of July, I saw Vallvidrera‘s incredible nature views and decided to blog it as soon as I can, Vallvidrera is inside the Natural park of Collserola, my friend and I went to this place to check it out, we took S1 from Diagonal Metro and Railway, we needed to stay in the middle of the train co’z the first 3 railway carriage won’t open in “Peu de Funicular”, we stopped at Peu de Funicular to Vallvidrera Superior, (not knowing that we can stop at the next stop which is “Baixador de Vallvidrera “ ) so, when we arrived at Vallvidrera Superior we walked and got lost a bit, it’s the biggest mountain park after all,… we walked and walked following my GPS on my mobile but as we enter the woods my mobile’s signal lost, and then we saw the map where it says where we are exactly and the swamp we’re looking for, so I photographed it to serve as a map. We put music while on the road, there’s wild pigs everywhere but they’re used to persons already so they’re not really considered as a danger in Collserola,(as long as they’re relaxed and you won’t do anything bad to them of course), we continued, the air is fresh, no pollution, green leaves, high trees, real-earth ground (a big difference from the city’s soil ground), we went higher and higher in the mountain and it was a dead-end already and then I turned around then I saw the Swamp with a nice view, it was spectacular, beautiful views with the swamp, looked like other country, so we went down and at last we saw it, there were turtles in the swamp, ducks, and dogs swimming and playing,.. a perfect place to do picnik with friends or family, and to hike of course, we sat down a bit in the grass while contemplating the beautiful scenery of this place , no cellphone disturbance, no messages, no calls, a total tranquility, I think you can arrive to the swamp by walking in Carretera de les aigües( it’s on my blog) when you continue to walk you can see more beauty of it, there’s also a bar where you can rest a bit with cool refreshing drinks and foods, then you’ll see the picnik area with seats and tables, near to it, the very first funicular of Barcelona, (but it’s not working already), when you go near it , you’ll feel like you’re inside of a refrigerator, it’s so dark inside that it made it look so creepy.
Well,. all I can say is, this place is WONDERFUL!!!! I would go back over and over again,!!!
Here’s the photos!
