The path now goes through forest track between fields of Cultivation and Mediterranean forest until one finds the waste water treatment plant in Lloret. From there take a stretch asphalted road until one reaches the forest track where one will run into a high number of elements and sculptures designed by modernist architects. Among these, you will find the Angel Monument, the Houses of the Angel, or the chapel of the oratory of Our Lady of Grace and the Cross of Term.  A few meters further still passing through many items of interest one will see the well-known sanctuary of Sant Pere del Bosc currently a Hotel & SPA.
