St. Andreu Salou-Termes de Caldes

Maximum duration:

This is a quite long cycled route (70 km) but with slight grade through the lovely farmlands among Llagostera, Cassa and Caldes.
We’ll arrive at a modest hermitage called Sant Vicenç d’Esclet, next to a masia (mas Vilabella), surrounded by sown and fodder fields. A well-known festive gathering takes place at the end of January, on sant Vicenç day.
We’ll continue the route and we’ll see soon the first houses of Sant Andreu Salou, a nice place full of order and peacefulness. The centre of the village, a group of scattered masos and houses, is sheltered by the church, up in a hill. From this point, we have a 360- degree panoramic view over the Selva waving relief, as well as Gavarres, Montseny, Guilleries and Pirineus, the highest of all. Sant Andreu Salou is surrounded by streams (Gotarra, Benaula and Verneda) and crops and has a high-quality landscape.
We still have the last part of the route that leads us to Caldes de Malavella. We’ll visit the Raig d’en Mel fountain, from where thermal spring water of 60 degrees runs, and the remains of Roman thermal baths from the 1st century AD. Recently, they have been successfully restored and are declared a National Historic Monument. They consist of a main pool with steps, surrounded by a corridor and different rooms where the bathers received different healing treatments.
We’ll get to Santa Ceclina by Can Matetes path, from where we’ll come back to Llagostera, taking there the greenway to Sant Feliu.
It is really a privilege to cycle all this plain between Esclet and Salou that has forest glades and poplar groves and it turns into a great green carpet in springtime. Gazing at the Roman thermal baths is the icing on the cake.
