Return to Vallfogona de Riucorb
This fantastic route around Vallfogona de Riucorb takes us to know the diversity of landscapes of the Corb valley, with dry areas and others more humid.
We go out in front of the Vallfogona pool by the stairs that go up the side of the old El Perelló mill (12th century), later converted into a residential house.

We turn left and move on until we reach the road to Segura. Attention, here we take the path that goes out to our left until we reach an era. An era is a space of land, flattened and firm to beat. We climbed up the side of a beating with the iron gate and climbed up. We advance among the remains of various agricultural constructions and holm oaks, oaks and pine forests. The road is wide and firm. We go straight on and take the second path that comes out on the right.
We leave the Badiceli road and turn right. We enter a lush forest of small-leaved oaks, holm oaks and pine forests. At the height of the Cadena mill (right), the path falls and enters the sunny side of Seniol.
