Terra Alta Greenway

Distance: 25 km

Difficulty: Easy

Time: 2 hours

Infrastructure and Pavement: Asphalt. 5 20 tunnels and viaducts.

Description: This stage starts from Arnes Lledó old station. All through the municipality of Horta de Sant Joan, Bot (where there is a fountain), Prat de Comte and, finally, Pinell de Brai.

Features: This is the most rugged and steep trail throughout the Greenway. You go in the middle of Mediterranean forest, almond and olive trees and vineyard. At the begining, you can simply enjoy a swim in the Algars river where  the Greenway passes just above it. Going to Horta de Sant Joan you can admire the Els Ports Natural Park, where stand by its peculiar relief Roques de Benet. You will know you have arrived at Horta because there is always the great mountain of Santa Barbara and at the bottom the convent of Sant Salvador, the sentinels of the village.

Also notice the chapel of St. Joseph of Bot. Later the river Canaletes refresh you with its journey accompanying the Greenway. At the heart of this wonderful valley rests Fontcalda a former spa and a church where today there are a restaurant, picnic area and better, the quiet and imperable Canaletes river.
