The route follows the ridge which borders the town to the west. It is known as La Serreta (“the little mountain range”), no doubt because of its modest height. Go down as far as the Planell valley and return through the area known as Les Roques (‘the rocks’). With its vineyards, olive groves and almond trees, it provides a fine example of what the Garriguenc hillsides would have looked like before industrialization.
Further on, a gradual descent will take you back to the Planell valley. The various country houses which populated this valley have been abandoned and their derelict walls serve as mute reminders of days gone by. They include Can Beia, Ca l’Espargueró and Can Planell.
The return to La Garriga will again take in some breathtaking views of the town, before you cross back over the dual carriageway.
