Description

A circular route starting from Can Pere Tià which passes through wooded areas and paths in the Valle de Bell-lloc. Go to the start of the Can Pere Tià trail, close to the children’s park and follow this route, crossing the river. Continue straight on and then turn to the right where you head into a wood, leaving the river on the right-hand side.

You can follow the signs all along this route, which is just over 8 km long with gradual climbs and moderate-high technical difficulty, with a gentle elevation gain and ground that is mainly easy and without technical challenges, although some stretches have stones, roots and rough ground. You can see the mill of Mas Xifra de la Vall, the church of Santa Maria de Bell-lloc, the Bell-lloc fountain, and the peak and dolmen of el Montagut. The descent from the peak towards the castle of Vila-romà is the most technical descent on the route, and so you will have to take great care. Finally, continue along the main track until you reach the junction with the Can Pere Tià trail and get back to the starting point.

Places of interest

PHOTO: Vila-romà castle

Peak of Montagut

This is one of the highest points in the sea Gavarres at 265 m in height and it has good views.

DMontagut dolmen

This is one of the oldest pieces of evidence of human settlement in the Valle de Bell-lloc. The Montagut dolmen is located in a dominant position with a great panoramic view. Only three slabs of this megalithic monument remain, one of which has an engraving in the form of a cross that was made at a later date to Christianise it.

Vila-romà castle

Built in the 11th and 12th centuries, this belonged to the Alemany family until 1276 when it was sold to the Bishop of Girona. After passing through various, hands, the French troops dynamited it in 1812 during the Peninsular War. Since then, it has gradually fallen into decay. It has a rectangular floorplan and consists of two concentric structures. In the central part, there is a wall of some 10 m that must have been part of the keep. Of the external structure, you can see one of the two towers that must have guarded the entrance, where you can see the rectangular merlons and arrowslits. We recommend staying out of it owing to its precarious and dangerous state of repair.
