Dry Creek Route of Campllong
Campllong is a small municipality in the Gironès region, surrounded by agricultural fields and agricultural and livestock farms. With a flat land and full of streams such as the Onyar that is drained by the river of Campllong or stream of the Gotarra or Bugantó, it becomes a natural place where you can breathe a lot of tranquility. Through a small walk of four kilometers around Campllong, you can meet and enjoy nature next to the famous Seca stream. We start!
We left the Campllong sports hall through the street of the church and in the direction of Plaça Catalunya (better known as the church square), on this street and on the right we left the old schools (or Old Town Hall), then the Llupiana Tower, that constitutes a model of fortified house surrounded by gardens and next, the parish church of Sant Quirze and Santa Julita, located in a small elevation of land surrounded by grass and trees.
When we reach the square, we turn left on the street of Can Sant Dionís until we find the paved road that goes to the neighborhood of Can Bosch. In front, we have a road that through Can Nosa would take us to Can Dionís until we find again the road to go to Remedio.
We continue to the right along the asphalted road for a small descent and in the first deviation we take again to the right by the road under the "Barbero farms". This route, recently paved, takes us to the road to go to Fornells de la Selva in Sant Andreu Salou.
At the crossroads we turn left towards Sant Andreu Salou, cross a first irrigation called "Rec Madral" and continue to the second brook much wider than the previous "La Riera Seca", before crossing it, we take a path to the left that The Margeners is on us.
This is a flat and long stretch but without any difficulty. On the left we have everything of fields and orchards and in the background the houses of the neighborhood of Can Bosch. If we look up we can enjoy a magnificent view of the neighborhood of the church. On the right we have the stream channel, with all kinds of vegetation that we normally find in humid areas like this one. A little further on we can see the Riera Nueva that, in this section, continues parallel to the Riera Seca.
After leaving behind a small forest on our left, we found the path that, from Can Maret, would take us to San Andrés (currently impracticable from this point in the direction of Sant Andreu Salou), if we look at our right, it still intuits the passage inside the river. We continue along the Margeners and now in the background we can see the houses of the neighborhood of Can Dionís.
When we reach the bridge of Los Remedios road, and find the paved road again, we make a left turn towards the Can Dionís neighborhood, passing through Can Bare, Can Sant Dionís and Crustó (in ruin), the road continues and It makes a sharp turn to the right, at this point we find on the left the road that we mentioned before and that would take us to San Andrés by Can Frigola and Can Maret.
We follow the paved road and in this stretch we find Can Feliu with its farms, the Abejaruco, Can Sureda, and Can Mas Miquel, a bit further Can Figueres, Can Jordi and Can Mas Miquel Nuevo, all still in the neighborhood of Can Dionís.
We enter the neighborhood of Can Bosch and later we find the houses of Cal Fusté, Can Pellaia and Can Helados, new and old. After a short descent we find in Can Bosch, one of the oldest houses in the town and that gives its name to the neighborhood. The origin of the place name of the neighborhood and of the house itself is believed to be due to the thick thickets that existed in the area.
Then we find the path we have already made at the beginning, and after a small climb up to the height of the square, we take the road that turns to the beginning of the Campllong Walk, we turn left to the old schools and we finish new to the pavilion.
