This route combines a flatter first part around Bellestar
and Aravell, rising sharply up to Sallent, which will allow us to enjoy
a magnificent descent when returning to Aravell.
first part of the itinerary - from La Seu to "Mas d'en Roqueta"
- is shared with route 41. Instead of turning towards Aravell, we will
follow by the track that goes up in north direction.
are sunny and rather dry places; we find pines and holm oaks, everything
in contrast to the bottom of the valley, where the irrigation channel
of the Four villages has made the miracle of turning a barren country
in a paradise of meadows. Above we will arrive at a farm where they
have horses: it is the tower of "Sant Climens", today absolutely
in ruins. The track arrives at one first crossroads, that would bring
us to Sallent and the Comes de Brubre; a little further on we find another
one that goes to Sendes. We will take the one that throws in direction
to noon, all slope, and that passes for the careening that closes one
of the slopes of the valley of Castellbò.
It is an interesting route: we pass through the side of an old fortress
of viscounts of Castellbò, the "Tower of the Moros",
and, a little more down by the edge of the "Mas d'Iscle"-
today we call it "Mardiscle". We leave to Aravell - one more
time precaution with the golf balls. The return, by Montferrer and Castellciutat.
