Non-evergreens, meadows and places to live

We leave the Plaça dels Països Catalans (square) next to the church of Sant Martí de Vilallonga. We go down the town to cross the Ter and climb up the slope in front. The path, is firstly steep and then softens a bit.
We walk under a deciduous forest of ash trees, quinces and hazel trees. The first cherry-covered meadows soon appear.
Quickly, we turn to the obaga to enjoy views over the valley of Camprodon, but before going down, we will approach the beautiful village of Abella. Going up Pelanca Valley we would reach the Collada Verda to cross to Pardines. In front of us, we have the "obac" of Serra Cavallera that, in our sector, is the Pasteres and we see Puig del Pla de les Pasteres (1894m).
It is worth mentioning the beautiful scenery of non-evergreens alternating with grass meadows and beech cuttings and ash forests on the rightmost part of the hillside in front: the Puig Furgat (1302 m) and the Ventós (1246 m) at the height of La Roca de Pelanca, where we now head to. The Serra Cavallera behind it, starts loosing height over Camprodon.
We walk 100 meter down the road and, now, enjoying the Camprodon Valley and the villages, we go down to the first village we see: La Roca de Pelanca. Behind, we see Llanars and Camprodon.
We take the road and walk a few meters to La Roca. We take the opportunity to rest and stroll through its old town: the enclosed village, the remains of the castle, all with medieval scenary.

Let's go back a few meters on the way, now climbing, to take a nice path that, by the lower part of the former slope, under a turn of hazels and ash trees, next to the meadows of grass from the bottom of the valley , will return to Vilallonga de Ter. Before, however, we can make a last stop to take a drink of fresh water in the beautiful setting of the Font Negra (Black Fountain).
