An accessible mountain pass at more than 2,000 m.
The town of Bagà, founded in 1233 by the Lords of Pinós, is the starting point for our itinerary. Here you can visit the Mediaeval and Cathar Centre, mural paintings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries of great artistic interest and the Bagà 1440 exhibition. You can also visit the Park Centre with its permanent exhibition and a temporary exhibition room where you can watch an audiovisual about the park.
On the way up to Coll de Pal you can enjoy spectacular views and note how the vegetation changes as you climb: from holm oak to oak, beech, Scots pine and mountain pine and, on the highest parts, alpine meadows.
One of your first stops could be Gréixer, located on the slopes of the Moixeró Mountain and from where you can climb to Penyes Altes de Moixeró. The second stop is at L’Hospitalet to take the historic Coll de Jou footpath that goes as far as Urús (Cerdanya).
Along the way you will find the Trencapinyes and Marmota Nature Routes, short itineraries on which the whole family can enjoy the mountain scenery, flora and fauna.
