This route allows us to get to know the old train station in Vall d'Aro, the old town of Castell d'Aro, and enter the natural area of Coma’s valley, where the oldest Living Nativity Scene (1959) of Catalonia is held from the Sunday before Christmas until Kings day including a play every weekend and public holidays. We will also discover the background of this municipality of the Costa Brava, where the relief rises to give way to the Gavarres, where we can find hidden corners and secret views for hikers. Places that inspired popular literates and poets, as the poem inscribed, by a pastor in the popular Ferro Fountain, on a granite slab makes us remind of.
