The Ramat de Camins trail was established in August 1956, when the writers and keen walkers Camilo José Cela (Padrón, 1916 – Madrid, 2002) and Josep Maria Espinàs (Barcelona, 1927) first walked the route through the Pyrenean counties of Pallars Jussà, Pallars Sobirà, Val d’Aran and Alta Ribagorça.
The stages we use are a provisional itinerary, which can be adapted to suit everyone’s preferences and decisions. Everyone can design their stages according to the days they have available, physical fitness, places of interest, the weather, opening/availability of overnight accommodation and so on.
Practical information on levels of difficulty, the best time of year to go, signage, cartography, mobile apps, essential equipment etc.
Professional photographers have been drawn to the villages and landscapes of the Ramat de Camins trail for some time now, using their vision to immortalise the various spots along the route. Their work offers us a look at what we can expect to find along our Pyrenean walk, showing us scenery, nature, villages, Romanesque remains, museums and eco-museums, customs and traditions, sports and adventure activities and gastronomy, as well as the Alt Pirineu Natural Park, the Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park and many other gems.
