Route of Garrell de Argelaguer

Route of Garrell de Argelaguer

Josep Pujiula i Vila (1937-2016) also known as the Garrell or the man of the cabins devoted much of his life to build and rebuild the Cabanes de Argelaguer.

Next, we propose a magnificent route and completely adapted to learn more about the work.

This route is included in the network of Itinerànnia trails and marked with vertical and horizontal signals that inform about the distance and approximate duration of the sections.

The route begins leaving the City Hall of Argelaguer where we will find the G125, follow the direction towards Tortellá until we arrive at Morató.

r179-ruta-argelaguer-cabanesOnce there, we take the detour to the left along a paved path until we find Fuente de Morató. Next, we take the detour to the right to join a dirt track that ends at the cabins of Garrell. Right there we can find a billboard indicating the tour inside the cabins.

The Park of en Garrell is the work of Josep Pujiula i Vila (1937-2016), an artist and self-taught inventor, a mechanical turner until he retired in 1999. Garrell's work creates different spaces and works between the mountain, the stream and the Fluvià river.

The park is also known as "The Cabanes de Argelaguer", a natural space that Josep took full advantage of to recreate a very personal world with cabins and wooden towers that climbed meters up and wells and pools. All this was achieved by taking advantage of the works of the Variant and the leftover materials, thus configuring the Riera de Can Sis Rals Fountain, a space classified as a Cultural Asset of Local Interest.

The work could be considered "land art" and "arte povera" since the author takes full advantage of the environment and the recycled material, creating spaces and spectacular works between the mountain, the creek and the river Fluvià.
