Santa Coloma de Fitor

Maximum duration:

Santa Coloma de Fitor is in the middle of the Gavarres, on the east side. It is the village of one of the most important old parishes of the entire massif. From Sant Feliu, we’ll go up first to Romanyà and then to Puig d’Arques by the paved path. We’ll have to cycle on the ridge (can Darna, Sant Cebrià dels Alls, mas Alenyà) and cross la Ganga col. By the Cavorca and the path that goes through the woods to the Fitor fountain and can Puig, we’ll arrive to Santa Coloma de Fitor. From can Puig, we’ll have an interesting perspective over the Fitor ensemble with the Montgrí in the background.
The Catalan Romanesque church was consecrated in 948. The beautiful architecture of the building is composed by two naves with semicircular apses and a rectangular two-story bell tower. Next to the rectory, there is a welcome and information point with drinks and food service.
Neatness, peace and quietness surround this place. At present, a festive gathering, probably the most important of the Gavarres, takes place at the end of October.
We’ll come back towards can Ribot, where we’ll take an upward path to Puig Cargol. From this point, we’ll enjoy a magnificent panoramic view over Palamós bay.
We’ll cycle down the main path for a couple of km and then, we’ll turn right, taking a signposted local path. It runs into the lovely valleys of Calonge (Coma de les Fonts and Tinars). This spot is full of vineyards and the well-known vine of Calonge is produced there. We’ll come back to Sant Feliu through Sant Antoni and Vall d’Aro.
Fitor is an old place full of history that has a touch of magic. Since it was restored, interesting proposals concerning tourist activities are offered over the past few years. It could be a benchmark and an essential destination for cyclers, trekkers and all kind of ramblers.
