On foot, bicycle or horseback, the Camino de Santiago represents a process of introspection and the chance to enjoy the cultural and scenic heritage.
A monolith in Port de la Selva marks the start of the route. In the area you can visit the Cap de Creus Nature Reserve, the Sant Pere de Rodes monastery (10th century) and Vilabertran, founded as a result of its homonymous monastery (11th century), and which preserves the church, a cloister and a Gothic palace.
In Figueres, you must visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum. And Girona has a medieval past, which can be seen by exploring its defensive wall, the Jewish quarter, cathedral, with the widest gothic nave in Europe, and the Sant Pere de Galligants monastery. Founded by the Romans, the city of Vic is based around a porticoed square and its monuments: a Roman theatre, the Episcopal Museum and the Moncada Castle.
After visiting the monasteries of L'Estany and Sant Benet de Bages, you come to Manresa, site of the Cave of San Ignacio and with outstanding views over Montserrat, and must-see destination along the Camino. It crosses Igualada, flanks the walls of Cervera and reaches Tàrrega, where the Jacobean shells dot the buildings of its historic centre, such as the Palace of the Marqueses de la Floresta.
After resting in the Castellnou de Seana pilgrim's refuge, you reach Lleida which, according to tradition, was evangelised by the apostle Santiago himself.
