Whether you travel with kids or not, it’s always a good moment to visit the factory of dreams that is any circus. And at the foot of Montseny there is a very emblematic one: the Circ Cric, with the tent, the high-wire acts and the humour, in Sant Esteve de Palautordera since 1995. It’s run by Jaume Mateu, whose artistic name, Tortell Poltrona, may ring a bell. Every Sunday at midday – and also often on Saturday and other days of the week – there is a show at the Circus, so if you’re doing this getaway at the weekend and today is Sunday, now you know! Book your tickets in advance and let the show begin!
At lunch time you can stay in Sant Esteve de Palautordera and eat at Can Marc, a restaurant that defines its cuisine as creative Mediterranean. You’ll still have the whole afternoon ahead, so go to the headquarters of the Sant Celoni based company Daema Aventura so that they can suggest a lively activity to spend your last few hours in Vallès. Doing a challenge race in the style of the Takeshi’s Castle game show, renting an electric bike, testing your skills with archery, forming part of a human table football game, going into a big inflatable ball or playing a football match are just some of the multiple possibilities that the company offers.
