Visit to la Vall d’en Bas

Resum de la ponència

There is nothing better than starting the tour through the Vall d'en Bas than a panoramic view from the Mallol. The day woke up with a fog, but it opened up and we could see the plot of land at our feet, the result of agricultural management in a cooperative. The origin in a llac de barratge, in relation to the lava flows and the Fluvià river, is the key to this very fertile land. To walk through the diversity of landscapes, we arrive at Sant Privat: one of the most popular waterfalls, the Salt del Sallent. From here we walk along a shady path. Among oaks, hollies and ferns, we see some fantastic yews. Our route will take us to Hostalets, with the best view of the Falgars cliffs. Historically we cannot stop talking about Francesc de Verntallat, the leader of the revolt of the Remences: from the house where the Mallol was born, to the monument remembering his fight in Hostalets
