Caracremada

From Caracremada to Carapedalada

Description

This route was established in 2010, one of the last mountain circuits for hikers that has been designed in our country, following the line of many others that have undoubtedly taken prominence in recent years.

The name of this route comes from Ramón Vila, alias el Caracremada, an anarchist and trade unionist of the CNT during the Second Spanish Republic. He also acted as a guerrilla in the French resistance during World War II. He fought against the Franco regime and is considered to be the last Machi because of his great knowledge and adaptation to these mountains in the Catalan pre-Pyrenees.

The Caracremada Route covers the most emblematic spots of the pre-Pyrenees, as well as the Serra d’Ensija, the Pedraforca or the Serra de Port del Comte, following the trail of the maqui, already mentioned. The route can be done on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, but in this case we will cycle through it divided into 4 stages.
