This route follows part of the old ‘Royal Road’, a medieval trail joining these two cities that was probably paved to be able to transport timber to Barcelona to construct a fleet for the king.
This circular walk starts in Hostalets d'en Bas and climbs up to Falgars d'en Bas along the old King’s Road, all but completely avoiding the private track closed to traffic that joins these two villages.
This walk is perfect for a family used to walking. The extraordinary views from Falgars at the end of the walk over the La Vall d'en Bas and Olot and its surrounding area make the effort worthwhile.
