Sant Bartomeu has Mediterranean features and it is surrounded by other hills and big areas of crop fields. It’s one of the first mountains of the Pre-Pyrenees after the flat landscapes in the central region of Catalonia.
Over 850 meters above sea level, Sant Bartomeu served as a watchtower for Solsona and is a natural space rich in biodiversity. This itinerary allows us to see a diversity of interesting habitats.
This is the easiest and most accessible way to climb a hilltop from Solsona.
Solsona is the starting point of this route (where the Black river and the Pallarès ravine meet) very close to the Post Office (next to the Solsonès Tourist Office). This sam place is the starting point for the following routes:

- Mare de la Font – Castellvell
- Solsona – Torre de Riner
- Sant Esteve d’Olius
