A route that passes through these three localities. This is a worthwhile route, even though part of it passes underneath the wind turbines, for the views of the whole of the Baix Camp and Baix Priorat areas.

This route has a little of everything, as there are parts that simply call for fitness, but also more complicated places where you may have to get off and walk.
