Description

Landscapes, Romanesque and Geology

We leave the Rupit road to “St. Joan de Fàbregues” we have views of the wooden hanging bridge over the Rupit stream. We turn off at the hill and church of “Sta. Magdalena”. The views over the town and the “Agullola” cliff are worth it.

Now we go down the stream and we follow it down on the right-hand side, without seeing the water, in a shady oak grove and below the hazel trees, booms, polypods and ivy on the ground. We hear the rumor of the water in the jumps of the “Rodor” mill that we will later see.

We go up to the track and back to take a less frequented one that will climb up the “Palomera”. A whole wet forest of lime trees, ash trees, some chestnut trees, and hazel trees accompany us along a pleasant cobbled path.

Spectacular views over the “Bassis” plain viewpoint. All the cliff from “Agullola” to the Lighthouse and the oblique slopes of the “Guilleries” in front.

We descend by the right-hand side passing by the side of anthropomorphous tombs. Notice how the vegetation has changed completely. Now facing the sun, the dominant forest is a mountain of holm oak used to make coal in the past. The descent way is beautiful.

It's worth going to “St.Joan de Fàbregues”. Fantastic example of Romanesque art. There are tables and benches.

We take the direction towards the “Salt de Sallent” and we can see the vegetation of the sun decks of the cliff dominated by the holm oak, accompanied by black maples and dotted with oaks in the most humid corners.

We cross Rupit’s stream and take the path to the “Salt de Sallent” viewpoint. Binoculars will help us discover the birds of these rocky environments. On the ground, we find many foram fossils type nummulit. Indicator of the former seabed, 55 million years ago in the eocene epoch of the tertiary era.

We go down again to the riverbed and before crossing it, we take the path that will take us upstream to the “Molí del Rodor” and its cliff. The riverside vegetation becomes present. Near and in the water the alders offer ‘postcard’ images, on the sides the large leaf ash trees, hazel trees, oaks and the bloodhound bush.

Next to the “La Pomadera” fountain, the old waterfalls such as “Sabaters” continue until reaching the cliff and “Moli del Rodor”. Here we find vestiges of this activity. (lock, holes, channel, ...) The place is nice and charming. Alders and hazels near the water make it a space for a quick rest and contemplation of the views. The road crosses the stream but we will continue the same way we came.

Soon we arrive to the village, crossing the “Saltiri” stream, we climbed a bit and we found the houses hanging on the stream. The village will rise on the fringes of the natural foundation of the cliff. The church of “Sant Miquel” stands out.

Tips

Track

  • A considerable and easy climb to Pla dels Bassis.
  • Descents with stone stairs, fun, from “Pla dels Bassis”.
  • The itinerary can be simplified by going to “Salt de Sallent” and returning to “Riera de Rupit”. You will shorten the route about 1 hour, but you will lose some wonderful points of interest.

Water

  • There is only one fountain returning through “Ria de Rupit”.
  • Precautions
  • Very careful with the youngest, on the edge of the cliffs.
  • You must pay attention to get off “Mirador dels Bassis”.
  • Cliffs are places exposed to the wind. On cold and windy days, take protection.

Land

  • Easy in general.
  • Downhill route from the “Bassis” viewpoint, more technical.
  • Comfortable mountain footwear.

Material

  • Binoculars to see birds in the cliffs.
  • Camera for landscapes and architectural heritage.

Una ruta molt agradable i amb un paisatge fantàstic. Si es va amb nens, es pot fer anada i tornada al Salt de Sallent pel mateix recorregut ja que no es gairé llarg (uns 40 min per recorregut) ni complicat.

Bones recomanacions per una gran sortida des de Rupit

Muy buena ruta, fácil e interesante para ir toda la familia. Accesible y no muy pronunciada.

Molt maca aquesta ruta ,amb les meves filles de 4anys i 2 anys

Hemos hecho esta ruta y es ESPECTACULAR...pero la hicimos en sentido contrario y acabamos n la ermita de Sta Magdalena con una vistas preciosas de Rupit. La recomiendo hacer en sentido contrario al sugerido

ha sigut genial, recurregut fácil i entretingut. el salt espectacular. totalment recomanable!

Bona ruta circular per fer en familia. El camí està ben senyalitzat i hi ha molt bones vistes. Es poden fer variants també senyalitzades. Si es va amb gent que no pugui caminar massa, des del parquing del Salt de Sallent hi ha un camí planer i curt fins el salt. Recomano, si es pot, no fer-la en festius molt assenyalats per evitar aglomeracions.
La ruta sobre todo al principio no está bien señalizada, hay varias bifurcaciones y no sabes por donde ir. Cuando lleges al símbolo de exclamación que pone pista gira a la derecha antes del Mirador dels Bassis sigue la carretera unos metros y a mano izquierda hay un sendero, ves fijandote bien si no te pasarás de largo, aunque hay un símbolo X rojo y blanco en un arbol, sigue por ahi, el sendero esta lleno de maleza pero se puede pasar

Hola. No olvideis seguir la ruta con la App de Natura Local. Las marcas no siempre tienen porque coincidir con nuestra propuesta. Si siguiendo la ruta te alejas del track, la app tiene alarmas para indicarte que te estas separando. Bueno, suerte la próxima vez.
Hoy hemos echo esta ruta, es muy bonito todo, pero para subir al mirador den bassi el camino estaba intransitable a causa de los árboles caídos en la última tormenta, hay que salir del camino para poder subir. A partir del mirador hasta rupit, perfecto.
