SECRET CATALONIA

Walking Tour

Quietness & freedom off the beaten track!


The wild and fascinating region of Alta Garrotxa is listed by the Catalan government as a national preservation area thanks to its outstanding natural and historical heritage:


- Remote valleys and canyons, deep forests of green oak and chestnut trees,

well preserved old villages with Romanesque 12th century churches.


- An extensive network of ancient footpaths used by generations of travellers and muleteers giving way to stunning panoramas over mountains and valleys.


The very roots of Catalunya!
