A very simple 3.5 km excursion which will enable you to leave the town centre of Escaldes-Engordany and discover the natural surroundings, populated by Phoenicia junipers. You may be lucky enough to see a rare bird: the blue rock thrush or the black redstart.

The starting point is located opposite the Place de la Mola, next to the Caldea wellness leisure centre (N42 30.666 E1 32.357)... You will take the de la Salita path to get to Pessebre avenue, cross the avenue, and continue on the de la Grau and du Coll de Jou paths.

When you reach the end of the pass (N42 30.853 E1 32.932) you will have a beautiful panoramic view over the central valley.
