Route of Vilanova d? Escornalbou to the hermitages

Short-distance excursion that, from the village of Vilanova d'Escornalbou, will take us to the hermitages of the Virgen de la Roca and San Ramón de Mont-roig del Camp. These hermitages erect in privileged watchtowers on the Baix Camp, perched on top of the red rock.

The painter Joan Miró, captivated by the strength of this landscape, immortalized it in several paintings while he was summering in Montroig. The hermitage of San Ramón, a square cube with white walls, stands out against the redness of the rock and the blue of the sky, still serving today to orient the sailors and make them arrive at a good port.

The route is of low difficulty, suitable for families with children. The duration of the route is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, with a total distance of 5.6 kilometers. The route can also be done by mountain bike.


We start the excursion to the town of Vilanova d'Escornalbou, leaving by the street of the Source and, after crossing the ravine of the Fuente del Arco, we continue in south direction towards Montroig and Monte del Areny.

When we reach their feet, we can continue straight on the Carlist path to the hermitage of the Virgen de la Roca. Those more accustomed to walking and without fear of heights have the option of climbing on the right by a path, which after passing through some ledges of rock equipped with cables, will allow them to reach the top of Monte de la Areny.

r200_sglesia In this area, the marine airs have sculpted magical forms in the red sandstone rock, forms that make our imagination fly, while we enjoy the imposing views over the plain poured into the Mediterranean Sea.

After crossing a rocky hill, we skirt the mountain by the sea side, until we reach the ladders of the Devil, which allow us to reach the lofty hermitage of San Ramón. We will descend to the hermitage of the Virgin of the Rock, of which the friars of Escornalbou were careful for four centuries, and we will continue down the wide cobbled curves until we find the Carlist path, which will take us back to Vilanova de Escornalbou.
