A Well-Connected Village in the Shadow of Tagamanent

Figaró-Montmany is a small municipality in the comarca of El Vallès Oriental with a population of about 1,100 inhabitants, which is formed by the village of El Figaró and the original village of Montmany de Puiggraciós, which is now virtually uninhabited.

Nestled beneath the mountain of Tagamanent, El Figaró is home to old buildings such as the 12th century Hostalet de la Merceria, the Modernista Hotel Congost and Rubinat Castle or the church of Sant Rafael, both of which are 19th century.

Figaró-Montmany is located in the north of El Vallès Oriental, next to Sant Martí de Centelles in the comarca of Osona. In El Vallès Oriental only Aiguafreda and Tagamanent are located further to the north.

Included in the picturesque municipality is the valley of Sant Cristòfol de Monteugues, where there is a Romanesque hermitage of the same name, and the valley formed by the Vallcàrcara stream, which is home to the also Romanesque hermitage of Sant Pere de Vallcàrcara.
