BTT ROUTE TO MAÇANET DE CABRENYS

Leave the Central following the track uphill towards Maçanet of Cabrenys. Go through the woods of Mas d'Avall and reach the Robert's mill. Cross the Arnera and follow the marked route (GR-11). At first, we find a sharp rise ascent feasible by bike. Then we continue on a flat path to St. Andreu d'Oliveda. This is an original Romanesque chapel of the twelfth century, which was later restored in the seventeenth century. The current building has a nave with a rectangular apse and still preserves much of the original Romanesque building.

Follow the track to climb up to Coll d'Oliveda. Leave the main trail and take the path on the right towards Serrat de Rocafort, Cantenys and Puig de la Granja. Begin the descent along the main path from here and go through Can Cardona. Then come to the chapel of St. Pere dels Vilars, a building that still has the Romanesque hancel dating from the tenth century.

Take the track to the right, going down, toward Maçanet Cabrenys. Continue on a paved road for about one kilometre and go along a technical path for the following two kilometres. Reach La Farga, a well-known place to walk and cool off. Near the dam there is an abundant fountain of fresh water. Then there is the Gorga de les Dones, an ideal place to take a bath.

Go along the track and through Molí de l'Olivet. Then find the paved road GI-503 that goes from Maçanet de Cabrenys to Tapis. Cross this road to get to the centre of the village by following the Cardona. Arrive at a square where you can see the Tourist Office and take Carrer del Pont to get to the Town Square. It is advisable to visit the Church of Sant Martí and the Castell Square, cycling through the interior of what was the old wall. The twelfth or thirteenth century church, belongs to the late Romanesque. It consists of a rectangular nave. It still preserves the wooden door decorated with wrought, which was very characteristic of the medieval age.

Take the street Burriana and leave the town on Salines street. Follow Tramuntana street, go over the bridge of Can Poquet, Can Buixó and the grove of the Cemetery. Cross GI-503 again and cycle towards Font d’en Coll. Go behind the football field towards the forest de la Casanova and go along an enjoyable downhill path parallel to the river Rinadal until La Central.
