The exit of this route arises from the square of Félix Figueras and Aragay in Olesa de Montserrat. From here we will continue to the outskirts of the town, passing through the Anselm Clavé street, Francesc Macià avenue, Joaquim Font street (in the Vic Vicent urbanization) and the Rubiroles road. Arrived at the asphalted curve in the urbanization of Ribes Blaves it is lowered passing near the Farmhouse of Can Matetas (at the moment closed) until arriving at the stream.

r233-hermitage-san-jaume Follow the river course north, passing under the cliff of the farmhouse of Sant Jaume. On the forest track that crosses the stream, take the path to the right that goes up to the farmhouse and the first hermitage: the hermitage of Sant Jaume.

From here, follow the forest road for 1.2 km to the urbanization of Ribes Blaves. On the paved road, turn right and go down to the geological outcrop of Ribes Blaves and on the B-120 road, which has to be traveled about 200 meters in a northerly direction. It has been very careful since it is a dangerous stretch.

After the curve, take the forest track that goes towards Sant Pere Sacama, to the northwest. After a while, the fork, you must turn to the right and, without leaving the road, in about 15 minutes you can visit the second hermitage of the route, that of Sant Pere.

Just ahead, a descent leads to the Mas Vilar and at the detour of roads, in the esplanade below, you have to go in the direction of Puigventós and the Cruz de Saba, the highest point of Olesa. It is a moment to enjoy the views before continuing the journey that, descending, leads to the Masía de Puigventós.

r_233-swords From here, a path leads to the Fideuer plane passing through two rural fountains: the Mateu fountain and the Pastora fountain. Once in the plan, it is headed towards the third hermitage of the route, that of Sant Salvador de las Espases.

From the last vestiges of what was a castle, you have to go down to the Puda de Montserrat to finish the circular route. After the Swords of San Salvador - a few needles of quarry conglomerate of pebbles - and before passing the train track, a path can be seen that climbs to the left in a southerly direction and leads to Olesa de Montserrat. The ascent, for about 10 minutes, is strong, but the road later plans to touch the municipality.

Downhill, you get to the cross of Beca. Already within the urban nucleus, it passes through the streets of the urbanization of Las Planas (Urgell, Bages and Conflent) to the Portal de Santa Oliva. From there, follow the streets Cruz Real and Ancho, Plaza de las Fuentes, Salvador Casas street, to finish the route, again, in the Plaza de Félix Figueras and Aragay.
