She. Magdalena de Guardiolans


This excursion from Borredà, proposes to visit the neighboring village of Vilada following traditional paths on two sides of great contrasts. The journey through an agricultural and livestock area, for Scots pine and oak forests and extensive grazing areas still in use today, by farmhouses and the hermitage of Santa Magdalena de Guardiolans halfway. The return following the course of the river Mergançol before it ends at the Baells reservoir, passing by the Climent bridge and crossing an eminently forested and practically uninhabited slope, at the foot of the humid berry of the Sierra de Picancel.
