Route through the Sierra Cavallera

Route through the Sierra Cavallera

We propose an itinerary to travel the crest of the Sierra Cavallera, between the municipalities of Ogassa, Camprodon and Pardines.

Come on!


Leaving the Avingauda de las Minas, we have to follow the road until we find the junction that allows us to go to Sant Martí de Ogassa or Sant Martí de Surroca. We will take the latter, which is on the right, to pass through the Surroca neighborhood, of which the Romanesque church stands out.

Then we will continue to the house of Can Picola and shortly after we will find a crossroads; If we take the one on the right, it will take us to Camprodon, and the one on the left is the one that we will follow to look for the Montserrat refuge (1570 m altitude), which is located in the area of Gran Jaça.

Following the track, we will come to a pass known as Coll de Pal (1775 m), from where we will climb, always on foot, the crest of the Sierra Cavallera, we will follow it westward. The first notable peak that we will climb is Puig Estela (2007 m). We can see that from the mountains there is an excellent view over the municipality of Ogassa and the Ribes valley, heading north.

A second peak on the route is Mount Coma de Olla (1930 m); going down, we will arrive at a pass known as the Portell de Ogassa. From here you can go towards the top of the Taga, towards the municipality of Pardines, heading north, or towards the south, which will be the path that we will take. We will stop at the Freixe spring, which provides water to the town, just before reaching the San Martín de Ogassa neighborhood, where there is a Romanesque church.

Continuing along the forest track, we will pass under the Mas Bassaganya, next to the source of the Adou, below the farmhouses of Jonvar and Can Camps, to go to find the crossroads where we have started the route.
