Description

Walking on both sides of the Rigart river

We will start the route at the Casino Square and follow the Passeig Andreu Illa until leaving the town in the direction of the torrent of La Boleda. Soon we will walk between beautiful meadows "splashed" here and there by ash and oak trees.
We will head to the Casetes neighborhood and cross the train line to the Croells torrent. We will stop to observe the schist on the Casetes road and then continue the course to cross the Rigart river first and follow the course of the Aspre torrent afterwards.
We leave the course of the torrent and continue climbing along a clared track accompanied by specimens of oak and pine trees. Next, we will leave the track to turn right on a shady path that follows the coast of La Vena, and will take us back to the Rigart River. In the stretch of Vena's coast, we will enjoy the freshness of the deciduous forest and we will discover the corner of the Vena fountain.
We follow Rigart River on a narrow path between the gorges and cross a bridge to go to Planoles' station. We will leave the station and an attractive walk, will take us to the La Serreta fountain, first, and to the Planès neighborhood below.

We leave Planès neighborhood, and once crossed the Planès river, we will continue walking along a promenade, flanked by attractive cedars until reaching the town of Planoles. Inside the nucleus, we will pass by the building of the Town Hall and the church of Sant Vicenç de Planoles, before returning to the starting point.
