Brief description

From a naturalistic and panoramic point of view it is one of the most evocative stages of the Cammino, thanks to the extraordinary beauty of the granite reliefs of Piscina Irgas, shaped by the waterways. The holm oak forests, the Mediterranean scrub and the numerous mining excavations along the way are also of great appeal. Today’s route is challenging not so much for its length as for the differences in altitude that have to be overcome.
