Alt Empordà route
El Voló - L'Escala
The Alt Empordà comarca is the first Catalan destination on the Pirinexus route. It covers a surface area of 51.8 km, with flat cyclable stretches in a very good state. Along the route we will pass through wooded areas, agricultural vineyards, rice fields and apple orchards. History, culture, art and designation of origin gastronomy are just some of the things we can find in the comarca, famous for its north wind known as the Tramuntana.
