La Carrerada


La Carrerada is the old drover road/ruta de transhumancia from Avinyo Nou/Sant pau d'Ordal via la Granada and Guardiola de Font Rubi to Torrelles de Foix. Roads and lanes are safe, quiet rolling/flat gravel and tarmac past vineyards, farm houses and wineries.
Not a Green Way yet but we're working on it, Cheers Paddy
