Directions

Take the road opposite the Cement Factory at Vallcarca, on the main C-31’Barcelona to Sitges Coast Road’ (N 41 14 27 01 51 47). It takes you under the road & railway into the Cement factory district. Pass onto a round-a-bout and towards the actual Cement Quarries some locally from 1901 (the other road is resticted and gives access to the motorway from both sides. For Toll & maintainance.).

Almost immediately a road under the C-32 signposted Áridos Uniland SA goes off to the right (N 41 14 35/01 51 35). It is a narrow rising road, winding up the side of the hill, with a sign to Campdàsens and a steep drop. Paved and not for the faint hearted, but fine for most (N 41 14 59/01 51 53 E).
