Sant Mamet is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.391m (4,564ft) above the sea level, located in the comarca of Noguera, in the province of Lleida and autonomous community of Catalonia, Spain.
The road to the summit, located in the Montsec Range, a mountain system of the Pre-Pyrenees, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. At the summit there’s a chapel, named as the mountain, and a small shelter where to hide in case of bad weather. The road is very steep. This is a long route with a steep climb, primarily through woodland. The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. An incredible journey, an unforgettable experience. On a clear day it’s possible to see the whole area of Lleida, the Pyrenees, Cadi mountains and Port del Compte, Montserrat and an execellent view of the Montsec range in the foreground. This is definitely one road trip that you want to record with lots of photographs.
