Amer’s Fountains

Index card


A liquid wealth

Simple route that gives us a good distraction time walking through a series of fountains, some of them especially important, in a shady, calm and fresh environment.

We will cross a small section of the greenway (via verda) of the “camí del carrilet”, we will go a little into the mountain and visit a very special fountain, then return by another path between more fountains and a riverside forest.

A liquid wealth

We will start the route at the train station of Amer between Olot and Girona, where we will take the same path from the track towards Olot. We will move smoothly along this wide, flat, well sign-posted path for about two kilometers.

After doing this section we will find ourselves next to the bottling plant “Fonter”, but we will turn in the opposite direction of the facilities. We will spend about 400 meters in the mountain of “Serrat de Folguerons” along a path that has a moderate rise between chestnut trees and other deciduous trees. There we will see the Abeurador’s Fountain, fresh and shaded. Further on, we will find the Carlins’ Fountain, where we will take half a step to return to the path of the track.

Next, we will go down to the premises of the bottling plant, “Fonter”, and we will have to enter the site to find Picant Fountain, which can be found in romantic gardens near the offices.

After visiting Picant Fountain we will leave the premises and we will go along a parallel path to the track towards Amer. By doing this, we will go through Capellans and Fàbregues’ Fountains, in a very shady and humid environment, under a forest with banana and riverside trees.

There will be a moment when we will be very close to the Brugent River, and shortly after, we will move away again passing near hazelnut fields and an abandoned wooden warehouse.

The last stretch of the route before reaching the starting point goes through agricultural fields and we can see clearly in east direction, Santa Brígida’s Chapel, located at the edge of a cliff.
