The top of the mountain is a triangulation station. (On the image on the right, this station can be seen on the left peak. Only due to the perspective the right peak seems higher. On the right peak some telecommunication infrastructures are installed.) A paved road leads almost up to peak. The state of the pavement is partly very poor (as of January 2015). While some parts are renovated, others contain large potholes and are covered by loose gravel. The last 1,500 metres of the road are closed for motorized traffic but open for cyclists and hikers. The final ascent to the triangulation station, some 50 metres above the endpoint of the road, is a step trail.

The Turó de l'Home was the site of the 1959 Transair Douglas Dakota accident.
