This long and varied route passes through a very solitary
area of outstanding beauty, taking in the sombre zone of Aubenç,
el Pla de Tolustre and the Valldarques canyon.
proposed route is long but not specially difficult. It can be done with
a medium preparation, and allows to cross a series of places of a great
landscaping cultural interest, generally solitary but gorgeous places,
in good part by the mountain range of Aubenç. We begin in Nargó,
to take the road that goes in direction to Isona. We will find on the
left the old church of "Sant Climent", one of the most impressive
monuments of the region.
At the height of the Masíes we will turn aside to take the
track that brings to the house of Oliva and the depopulated one of Aubàs.
Under the Tower of the Duc, the great rock that presides over all the
canyon of Valldarques, the track continues by the canyon of Valldarques.
We pass below the ruins of "Santa Maria de Remolins" and by
several examples of the very personal architecture of the zone.
After a while of ascent we leave to the asphalt road that, in south
direction, brings us to Gavarra. It is worth to be stopped for a while:
the houses with stone lumps, the castle, the view of the plains of the
Noguera and the Urgelll.
there we descend to the Fountain of Isot , where there had been an order
of the Hospitalers, from where we raise to the Pla of Tolustre: a great
flat extension, surrounded of mountains, with houses today lost. We
will be received by the ruins of the church "Rònega".
We will cross the Pla in north direction, to return to descend Valldarques
and, from there, the track that returns us to Aubàs, and down
that makes slope.
