Sant Aniol Valley - Full Day
Located in the wild territory of Alta Garrotxa (Girona, Pyrenees), this hike will bring us to Sant Aniol d'Aguja romanesque church, a 11th century architectural jewel built in the depths of the valley. It is surrounded by holm oaks and ash trees. On this trip we will go upstream until we arrive at the hermitage. A little bit later we will arrive to a couple of impressive waterfalls. If you're wearing swimsuits, you will be able to swim in the river (but the water is quite cold!). After the bath we will eat our picnic under the shade of the pleasant trees. One last effort and we will be at Salt de la Nuvia mountain pass, a wonderful scenic point which will give us a complete view of the whole valley. A quiet walk following the river shore will take us to the end of the hike. Totally recommendable and easy going!
