From Santa Maria de Segueró (Romanesque hermitage, from the 12th century, with modifications from the 15th and 17th centuries). We pass by and begin to climb following the yellow marks that accompany us to the top. We begin the ascent among oak forests, upon passing the Campmol house we find an Itinerànnia crossroad G800 El Noguer de Segueró.
We leave the GR marks and follow the Itinerànnia ones (yellow painted marks to the Mare de Déu del Mont sanctuary) that will lead us uphill to the road that goes to the Sanctuary passing through Pedró de Sant Macies and that of Sant Miquel. Upon reaching the road we see the great Monumental Oak trees.

We continue travelling up the road until the marks lead us to follow a path heading north to Falgars, we find the AG19 Falgars crossroad and continue towards Mare de Déu del Mont. We always continue along the main path until we find a crossroad where we leave the main road, cross over and reach another path that heads east, we find the AG18 Bac de Falgars crossroad and always continue towards Mont, until we see the path that will lead us to the Sanctuary passing by Faig Gros (large beech) and further on, Roure de la Sort (the lucky oak).

We reach the G115 Mare de Déu del Mont crossroad, cross over the car park and go up to the sanctuary to enjoy the magnificent views from the top.The return is along the same path.

The Sanctuary church is late Romanesque, from the beginning of the 14th century. The semi-detached hostelry and rectory, behind the church, are from the 17th and 18th centuries. The well-restored chamber occupied by Verdaguer is preserved with furniture of the time (from where he wrote one of the works of art “El Canigó”).
