The Route of the Capona in El Pla de Santa Maria

The Route of the Capona in El Pla de Santa Maria

In Pla de Santa María we find a large concentration of dry stone buildings, buildings that defy the passage of time, and that are the testimony of a bygone era.

Through the Capona route we will discover the past and the impact of dry stone in the municipality.

You accompany us?

 

The Route of the Capona allows you to discover an environment, a past and a magnificent and surprising heritage, showing visitors the art of stone and the beauty of the place. You have to look at everything: the buildings, the stones, the details, the plants, the crops, the trees, the colors, the shapes... and let yourself be seduced.

We will see the stone as a unique material element to separate farms, to trace paths, to provide shelter, to take advantage of water,... in short to do the minimum with the maximum. Valuing and knowing the importance of these buildings is the best recognition of agriculture, to so many anonymous hands that made these true works of art possible, admirable for their simplicity and beauty.

Along almost two kilometers, on a flat road, we find barracks, pots and hiding places. The Soleta pot stands out, a construction designed to take advantage of the rain water, which is unique for its originality and beauty.

The itinerary can be done either on foot or by bicycle, and one section coincides with the GR-Ruta del Cister, and with the local path "A walk through the area, walking along the royal roads".

The Route launched in 2002, has already received hundreds of visitors from different parts of the country. The closing route of the European dry stone days of the Rovira i Virgili University was chosen (July 2002). And he received the prize for the Safeguarding of Cultural Heritage of the Institute of Vallencs Studies (2002).

The City Council of the Santa Maria Pla also offers guided tours of the Route, and dossiers explaining the itinerary and the constructions that we find along its route.
