The last weekend I was in Castello, a region that I didn’t visit, just the coast and by the highway. Very interesting place and a great discover for me.
Montanejos is a termal village. The temperature of the river is warmer than should be, it makes very comfortable to swim inside the river. I did more than 200 meters up to the river in the canyon.
During this weekend I also enjoy the largest green track of Spain. It was an old train from the port to the minery area, now a paradise to go with bike. Tunnels and trees around, remember the past of the track. The new track sometimes is very close and is posible to see the train.
The landscape is nice with mountains and lot of trees.
Mediterranean rivers are very dangerous, from nothing to a floats. The dry rivers are the most dangerous, because there aren’t trees to stop the water.
Olive oil, wine are the typical products of theses area, also good almond. Most dry cultive, even is water in the area, the temperatures are more extreme than in the coast. Orange, lemon prefer areas were freezing temperatures are inusual, not inland where every winter is below zero at nights.
I don’t like summer but I know how to enjoy it. In the shadow with fresh water is a good plan for the warmest days.
This summer I’m discovering lot of places, the rivers this year with lot of water, the nature is full of life and less dry than other summer.
Look at the maps, research internet, also Instagram and go to have my own personal view. I’m proud of my region that is full of amazing places, some of them still not to crowded.
Walk inside the river, looks a tropical place, in the shadow the temperature is perfect.
We discover the effects of the Gloria in January, the rainfall in this area was very important and there lot of trees in the water. Also we discover something of the past, I don’t know about this strange structure but I take good pictures. There write the floods of 1961. Should be local, because isn’t very important flood in Barcelona.
When we finish the river way we arrived to relax place. People rent apartment just to relax and I believe that is a quiet place in the forest.
I’m looking for the next adventure, the true is that always I have ideas, sometimes the problem is the time. The world is big enough to enjoy everyday is you look for details.
People get surprised with big cities that are small compared with forest, rivers, lakes…
Step by step you can walk a lot, and every single place is posible to be surprised.
I love look maps and try to discover places, the magic of this place start before going. Love in internet is like this, you look well, look for information but when you are there you see details that never can imagine.
The most important is look for places that bring motivation in the moment that you find, the magic of the place is to see in the perfect day for you…
Comarca volcánica de Catalunya, en Girona con multitud de motivos para visitar.
Desde la construcción del Túnel de Bracons la comunicación por carretera entre Osona y Garrotxa ha mejorado mucho, además de acortar mucho la distancia desde Barcelona. Sin peajes se puede llegar a un paraíso que te ofrece mucho.
Es una comarca muy verde, porque llueve mucho, pero con vegetación mediterránea, la máxima expresión del clima mediterráneo húmedo. Zona de media montaña muy agradable para caminar en bosques frondosos que esconden tesoros.
Pueblos medievales, pozas de agua espectaculares, un parque natural para disfrutar e infinidad de rutas cerca de volcanes. La Alta Garrotxa paraíso de escaladores, son los Pirineos Orientales con alturas más bajas pero no por ello menos interesantes.
Al llegar aquí da igual de dónde accedas porque te da la sensación de exhuberancia. La comarcas vecinas no son secas, pero no tienen ese verdor tan intenso, la tierra volcánica imagino que ayuda también a dar un contraste especial.
No tardaré en volver a la Garrotxa, solo hay que cruzar una serie de túneles para aparecer en un mundo diferente, donde te das cuenta que la tierra está viva. El poder de la tierra modela el paisaje y la humanidad se adaptado a ese mismo.
The river Ebro is the most important Mediterranean river in the Peninsula. Is the longest totally in Spain. I talk of the medium and the end of the river.
Ebro start in Cantabria and cross part of Burgos, but I will talk about this area another day. Today I talk about La Rioja, Navarra, Aragón and Catalunya.
The Valley is very windy in winter. Also fog is very important in winter, in some areas could be some weeks without sun. The region isn’t very rainy, with some desert, not totally natural, because was the extensive use of the furniture and the sheep that help to disappear the trees. Climate isn’t desert, sometimes have heavy thunderstorms. Irregular rainfall like in most of Mediterranean region.
The Biggest cities of this region are Logroño, Zaragoza, Lleida.
The weather is hard in this region, winter with fog or wind, despite some ocasional showers. The feeling of cold, humid or to dry with the wind.
Spring big contrast in day and night temperatures. Thunderstorms are normal at this time of the year, the most rainy time.
Summer is warm, sometimes 40°. Nights aren’t very cold in big cities, a little bit better than Mediterranean cities but still warm nights.
Autumn in the east is posible have the Mediterranean famous situation of heavy rain in October. November start the fog days, first some hours, but In December could be even weeks.
I will continue until the end of the river and the amazing Delta another day.
The river has lot of big lakes to control, but sometimes in Spring with heavy rains the floods are important in this region.
In the lakes are the material that need the Delta to survive. Delta is like we now for they cut the trees for furniture to make ships to fight again England. It make that part of the floor went to the river and form one of the most important Delta in Mediterranean. Lot of species of birds, the rice are in serious danger. The last famous Gloria bring lot of problems to the region.
