The challenging but magical location of El Monte de Cadiretes
We’re off to an intense start: the most adventurous visitors can pick up a map and challenge their strength with a few interesting hiking routes, and one of the most distinctive ones is the ascension to the so-called Monte de Cadiretes. Nevertheless, don’t let the words “challenging” and “adventurous” scare you. It’s perfectly apt for all ages and it offers hikers a unique opportunity to enjoy a one hundred percent natural experience, rewarding everyone who chooses to come with privileged views of Montnegre or Guilleries.
Once we’re back from our journey, a good option is to take a good rest to recharge your energy sampling the delicious cuisine of the area, whilst enjoying slightly more metropolitan settings. The city of Girona itself has plenty of sites with a cultural and historical heritage, with attractive key points like El Paseo de la Muralla, the University, the Arab Baths, or the Agullana Palace. It’s a tempting proposal, making for a light and fun evening walk.
And after fully recharging your batteries in a cheap hotel in Girona…

Load your backpack with tasty and energising food, put on your most comfortable shoes and get ready for an excursion to the Santuario de los Ángeles (Sanctuary of the Angels). It’s an excellent route to enjoy in the company of your partner, your friends, or your family, walking amongst holm oaks and following charming paths.
It’s little to no effort compared to the reward of witnessing the most authentic history and heritage of the area with constructions like the Castle of San Miguel, the Bisbe Fountain, or the panoramic view from El Olivet.
To round off this list of must-see spots in the region of Girona we would like to add an excursion to Monte de la Banya del Boc. It’ll be particularly interesting for those who have a fascination for volcanoes, for this is exactly where you can find the volcano of La Crosa, situated in the plains of Sant Joan.
A bicycle route following the old railway tracks
If you would like to continue discovering the wonderful places of Girona, there is another interesting route, which can be done on foot or on a bicycle, following the old railway tracks. This medium-intensity route goes by the attractive comarcas (counties) of la Garrotxa and El Gironés, and we recommend you to stop by to see Sant Julià del Llor i Bonmatí old station, or the bridge of the Ter river.
