Marxa del Pelegrí
The Marxa del Pelegrí [The Pilgrim's Walk] covers the final stage of the Ignatian Way, connecting Montserrat and Manresa. It follows the path trodden by Saint Ignatius of Loyola on 25 March 1522, allowing hikers to follow in his footsteps and enjoy the landscapes that captivated him. This 26-kilometre stage is home to a wide range of stunning landscapes. It begins in Monestir de Montserrat and passes through Santa Cecília, Castellbell i el Vilar, Castellgalí and Oller del Mas before arriving in the centre of Manresa.
Those who walk the final stretch of the Marxa del Pelegrí can rediscover the city that inspired the world-renowned figure of Ignatius of Loyola. New routes and formats have been incorporated in recent editions, meaning the Marxa del Pelegrí is more accessible than ever before.
