COSTA BRAVA: CAMI DE RONDA IN S'AGARO

A lovely wednesday of the first week of November we went to Platja d'Aro and S'Agaró (Sant Feliu de Guíxols) in the Costa Brava to wander the footpaths, called Camí de Ronda (Ronda Way) which began in these towns.

The Camí de Ronda was a footpath built in 19th Century along the Costa Brava coast to help the police to patrol the coast and avoid smuggling. It was formed from small footpaths through the cliffs along the coast of Catalonia.

Nowadays the Camins de Ronda are a set of public seaside footpaths (belonging to the GR-92) often connecting beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava. They have been restored to provide pretty hiking trails, as they pass through some of the Girona coastline’s most emblematic locations, offering beautiful views of the coves and often passing through pine groves.

The network of footpaths that has been best restored can be found linking together the fishermen’s districts and the coves in the townships of Begur and Palafrugell, as well as different points of Palamós and Platja d’Aro and the entire coastline from S’Agaró to Sant Feliu de Guíxols.
