Campins is a tiny village with a population of only 500 inhabitants or so which is located on the southern edge of the Parc Natural de Montseny in the comarca of El Vallès Oriental.
The village itself is very small as the population is spread amongst a number of urbanisations such as les Esplanes, Sant Josep, Campins Residencial i Can Joanet.
The countryside is dominated by chestnut trees, holm oaks and as the name suggests pines, irrigated by a number of streams and punctuated by the peaks of Puig Morell (318m), la serra d’en Mates (330m) and el turó de Can Zidro (390m).
Apart from the church of Sant Joan or the hermitage of Sant Guillem, there is not much to see in Campins but the surrounding countryside make it an excellent starting point for walks or excurcions into Montseny.
The Festa Major is on the last weekend in August and is in honour of Sant Joan Baptista (Saint John the Baptist).
By Road: Campins is on the BV-5114, which is the Sant Celoni exit of the AP-7 Motorway and can also be reached via the C-17, C-25 and C-35.
By Public Transport: The best way to get to Campins by public transport is to take the Rodalies R2 Nord Local Train Line to Sant Celoni and then take a bus or a taxi.
