Route through the streams of Sorba, Agua de Ora and Gargallà
We propose a route to discover the natural environment of the Sorba, Agua de Ora and Gargallà streams, in Montmajor el Baix Berguedà.
Are you accompanying us?
This route begins in front of the 6th century church of Santa María de Sorba, where we find the Marthyrium de Sant Eudald. Then we move towards the wooden bridge that crosses the Agua de Ora river, a tributary of the Cardener and take the forest track on the left, skirting the river and enjoying its cool atmosphere.
We will go down the track enjoying the landscape of pine trees and cultivated fields with the music of the water in the background. Before reaching the New Mill, we turn left to go up the side of the Gargallà stream, be alert, this is where you will see the most beautiful streams and pools of the route.
The forests on our right are shady and humid, and they are also prolific in mushrooms. The Ca la Guillema puddle is on our left and has a beautiful waterfall, a little further up we find another large puddle, and little by little, the presence of the feeders and the yarns let us see the cattle, that there are pasture cows that roam quietly.
Soon we leave the forests behind and enter a growing area, there are many farm fields. We go around the Cabaña and turn left, there is a wide forest track with good walking. We walk through oak and pine forests and between fields. We are heading towards the set of farmhouses that are part of Sorba, such as Can Gili, Ca n'Estruch, Cal Caballero, Cal Molner and Cal Teuler.
Once on the road, we turn left towards the starting point, the Sorba church, where we will end the route.
The forest tracks are in good condition.
At the top of the hill in front of the Sorba church, there is the small church of San Miguel and the Iberian Site. (On foot it is about 30 min). Once on the wooden bridge, if we turn left, about 200 meters we find a recreation area of Terracuques.
