Estimated time

Recommended season






Any season is good, because since the path runs through the forest, the temperatures are not usually extreme..

Bring clothes suitable for the season of year, comfortable shoes and water. If it has rained in the days before, it will be useful to bring a waterproof jacket.

Perfect route to do with small children. On this excursion we will be able to visit the most emblematic hermitage of the Vall de Cardó, the Ermita de Sant Simeó Estilita, more popularly known as the Ermita de la Columna, or visit the Ermita del Carmel, located between a small reservoir and a precipice

Much of the path follows the route of the old stone paths built by the Discalced Carmelites. There is not much left of the cobbled road, but we will be able to enjoy the leafy forest that provided shade and shelter to the hermits, and we will get to know the Argilagà spring, a curious spring dug into the ground and reinforced with fantastic walls of dry stone

A good opportunity to get to know a bit of Cardó if we are accompanied by little ones with short legs but eager to discover the world.
