An easy and flat route that starts among fields of dry farming. It is ideal at the end of winter or in springtime. It ends at the majestic Creixell Castle.
It is perfect for BTTS. If you are an experienced rider, we recommend you to follow it with the next route until you reach Roda de Berà. Ride along paths which are among fields of dry farming, with barely any slopes or technical difficulties.
We leave Torredembarra and we immediately find ourselves in the middle of a landscape full of almond trees, olive trees and carob trees, which flank the whole route. The restored banks of dry stone, present almost all the way through, frame this landscape for us and make us feel as if we travelled back to old times, when time was measured by its connection with nature, and the slow and crafty work of farming modified the environment, stone by stone, tree by tree; a landscape which has survived until today and which we can enjoy all along this route.
At the end of the route, Creixell offers us majestic stone constructions that tell the history of the town; it is a town which, beyond its beach, has a well-preserved, charming and beautiful old town.
Note: this route has been suggested by the GEPEC.
