CORTAL GREAT ROAD

Distance: 8.24 km

Difficulty: hard

We start at the steps of the Office of Tourism bridge and then go in a south westerly direction towards the Club Nautic (sailing club). We go past the Club Nautic on the right hand side and climb the meandering Armentera road; a rocky road, but nice at the same time, which eventually leads us to the centre of the same village. Then we start out on the Cortal Gran track, a nice, quiet path which, at the end, where the trees have closed up to conceal the way, reveals the Cortal Gran, a fortified construction of 14th Century medieval times. On the way back we take the Vinyers road and the Empuries Road into town.
