The third stetch from the Oliba Route goes from Ripollès to the French border and it is mainly based by mountain villages and its important Romanesque art.
It joins some villages such as Sant Joan de les Abadesses (with the spectacular “Santíssim Misteri” inside the monastery founded in 887 by per Guifré el Pelós, the Abbey Palace and the cloister); Sant Pau de Segúries (with the stone French way); Sant Pere de Camprodon, (from the 10th Century); Molló (with the Santa Cecília church from 12th Century).
It also goes though small rural villages such as Freixenet, Favars, Grells, Fabert or Espinavell while mixing trekking, culture, tradition or the discovery of inusual coins in the Pyrénées.
The GR 151 (route 151) is not only a way for the visitor to discover the terrain, it is also a way of bringing together the inhabitants of the areas though which it runs, recovering old paths used to transport beasts and for traditional excursions.
The walk was conceived so that everybody can enjoy themselves, either for sport, excursions or for cultural reasons, but in their own way. Accurate information is provided about the route, the changes in level and the distances so that the hiker, or walker, can decide as they go along about their strategy for each stage of the route.
Distance: 39,56 km
