Hiking Girona Catalonia Cala Fosca Estreta
Come and join Adventure Girona to explore the most spectacular and entertaining round of our coastline.
The walkway was formerly used by the civil guard to make the “round” hence the name of the walkway, to control smugglers who carried out illegal activities, thanks to the orography of the area.
During and after the civil war there were many rationed or prohibited products that gave rise to this illegal market.
Linear route to know this magnificent environment full of culture and history of little difficulty with a route of about 10 km.
As soon as we leave the Cala de la Fosca in Sant Joan de Palamós we will find the castle of Sant Esteve 11th century. Then with Cala S'Alguer, old fishermen's huts. An example of traditional architecture with stone walls and the famous Catalan laps, totally blending in with the landscape.
Today used as second homes to spend the day and eat rice with family or friends by the sea.
Then we will find the Cala de Castell of more than 300 meters in length with a crescent shape and fine golden sand. In the 90s, the residents of Palamos agreed to a referendum so that it could not be built in this virgin area.
In the upper part of the beach we will find the restored structures of an old Iberian Village from the 6th century BC.
Before reaching Cala Estreta, we will walk along high cliffs passing through the coves of Senià, dels Canyers and the photogenic Punta de Canyers, a must stop to immortalize the moment with a photo.
Cala Estreta, as its name suggests, is a narrow cove (“estreta” in Catalan means narrow) that will surprise us with its natural environment, where nudism is allowed. In front we can see the Formigues Islands where in 1285 and in the so-called Battle of the Formigues Islands, the Aragonese squad sank the French fleet. Returning by the same path, before reaching Cala Castell we will pass through Barraca d'en Dalí, famous for having a sloping door.
The return will be done by the same starting path, passing through Cala Castell, Cala S’Alguer to Cala Fosca.
