Itinerary

This itinerary will allow you to disconnect from the population and enjoy the surrounding forests, obtaining fantastic panoramic views that include Lloret, Blanes and the Catalan pre-coastal mountain range all the way to the town of Vidreres.

One will start the itinerary in the heart of Lloret de Mar leaving the village along the Avenida de las Alegrias until reaching the hermitage of Our Lady of the Alegrias. Continue along the asphalted road until one find on the left a forest track (banner). Later one will pass a farmhouse, Can Sota and shortly after one will finds a signal that indicates the rise direct to go to the Shrine of Caulès. The climb is constant until you arrive to the remains of the house of the Casa Nova d’en Fornés.

At this point one turns left to continue gently climbing through a forest track wide and one will pass another one the Can Barraquer. About 500m later one leaves the main track to turn to the right and get in on a forest path.

Later arriving at the Mas Pedrosa one has to continue until one finds the junction of paths. From here one takes the option to go up to Caldes de Malavella (12km north). Follow the indication towards the Hermitage of Caulès where one will arrive in little more than 1 km, already within the area of Vidreres.

The beautiful chapel is dated back to the 10th century. From the hermitage the road begins to descend gently through a forests of oaks, cork oaks and pines and one will find signs that indicates different options to reach the town Vidreres.

Taking the most direct route one wil reach the plain finding a signal to climb the Castle of Sant Iscle. Take the time as is worth diverting from the route (400m) and visit the ruins of this castle that belonged to the viscounts of Cabrera.

From this point one only has to cross the extensive Pla de Vidreres agricultural area passing different farms before arriving at the Sports center of Vidreres town which marks the end of the route.

To return to the starting point is easy since Vidreres is perfectly communicated with Lloret de Mar with a regular bus line.
