The route runs through the valleys of Anoia (Les Valls de l'Anoia), this area has been listed as an Area of Natural Interest.
Surrounded by forests, the streams that flow into the river Anoia form beautiful waterfalls. Through the route you can discover the natural values of the gorges, forests and agricultural areas that make up the landscape of the Valleys of Anoia.
We invite you to visit the waterfalls and enjoy the geological characteristics of this unique ecosystem.
*Please note that a 3 hour walking time will be required if you intend on visiting all of the waterfalls.
The Valleys of Anoia (Valls de l'Anoia) is an area of Mediterranean forest and the predominant tree is the white pine. We recommend a visit to the monumental pine tree at the forest of Can Gallego.
In the wetlands of the torrents you will find small oak groves, in these groves the most distinctive elements are the ferns and mosses. The capil·lera (maiden hair well) is the most characteristic.
Birds are another attraction of this area which has been declared a SPA for the conservation of Bonelli's eagle. This species coexists with the Great Tit, Partridges and Hoopoe, amongst others.
The greatest exponents of particular geology in this area are the cliffs of the river Anoia. The geological formation of these cliffs has been the result of a long process of erosion caused by the passage of water.
These waters have run uninterruptedly, sculpting a series of beautiful waterfalls. They have formed the rounded labyrinths of alluvial rock, pushing between the recessed vertical walls and descending ramps as waterfalls shaped like corkscrews.
The (Salt del Cargol) is undoubtedly one of the most magical of this route.
The scenic interest of the valleys of Anoia (Valls de l’Anoia) lies in its contrasts. Where Mediterranean forests, vineyards and cereal crops coexist with the freshness and luxuriance of vegetation near the water, with flowing streams and waterfalls.
