Els Angels and more

Overview

If you want to ride one of the quintessential road routes in Girona, Spain, this one is for you.

The trail begins at the stone bridge, leads straight up to the most famous climb – Els Angels – and makes its way to the hilly countryside, through several gorgeous medieval villages of Baix Empordà and Costa Brava. The loop finally ends at the Plaça Independència in the hub of Girona. Sanctuary Els Angels is a highlight of this ride thanks to its magnificent view of the Mediterranean Sea and the Garrotxa and Pyrenees mountains.

This 32-mile trail is rated as intermediate, and recommended for experienced riders as a great way to explore this area of Els Angels.

The first half is fun and playful with a big climb and descent. The other half is less challenging, but none the less rewarding.

Terrain

Rolling and smooth road. Some stretches are on rough trails and woodland paths. The second half is smoother with flatter terrain and a lot less rolling.

Access

The route starts at the Pont de Pedra bridge. Follow the street down to Placa de Catalunya.

Food and drink

A number of options can be chosen along the way and especially in the square of Girona. There are also some food and drink stops at the top of Els Angels climb.

More details

The route runs past some worth-a-visit villages in Baix Empordà: Madremanya, La Pera, Púbol, Flaçà, and Bordils. In Púbol, slow your trip and spend time on the museum house Gala and Salvador Dali.
