Hiking Girona Catalonia Garrotxa
Allow Adventure Girona help you explore a half-day route through Alta Garrotxa: a land of enormous beauty and discover marvelous landscapes, which were previously a space for bandits and smugglers who took refuge in its caves.
We will see different caves of great beauty such as the Bisbe cave, which is the most spectacular in Alta Garrotxa.
It is a circular route where we will see different caves. We will walk on rocks through uneven terrain and we will delve into the history of this territory.
We will visit different caves:
1) La Cova del Bisbe is the most spectacular in Alta Garrotxa. Its location on the cliff and the large dimensions of its opening make it especially attractive. It is sixty-eight meters long. The legend places the stay of a fugitive bishop from the Muslims ...
2) La Cova dels Ermitons has an opening of more than two meters high, but it is perfectly hidden by the surrounding holm oak woods. Their occupation ranges from the Middle Paleolithic to the last Neanderthals, now 34,000 years ago.
3) The Cova de les Monges (Monks Cave) is a monumental cavity measuring 27 meters deep by 10 meters wide and 14 meters high. Despite its spectacular proportions it is very well concealed. Here a Neolithic community settled on the calcareous site, and interesting remains from the Bronze Age were found ...
4) The Cova del Coll Roig today is a space totally inhabited by goats.
