Leaving Palamos marina and passing along the upper part of the town, we immediately enter the “vía verde” linking the village of Palamos with that of La Bisba d’Empordà through the railway of the Small Train (El Tren Petit). This curious railway was created thanks to the main industry in the area (cork), the but was also used by neighbors from nearby villages as transportation between the sea and the mountains.
In the middle of the Small Train railway,we will leave the main trail and we head to the pretty village of Calella de Palafrugell, famous for its habaneras.
Leaving Calella, we enter, by GR, the path lined by pine trees defying the coast. We pass in front of the magnificent gardens and beautiful castle ofCap Roig which are definitely worth the stop.
Leaving the gardens behind, pedaling up Castillo beach, where the boldest may make a small hiketo the Iberian settlement of Castell.
At this point lies one of the purest preserved beaches left in central Costa Brava- enjoy this privileged environment.
After relaxing, we will arrive on our burricletas at the port of Palamos.
