The Barcedana Valley and the Romanesque heritage of Llimiana
A walk through the foothills of the Montsec Sierra, amongst olive trees and Romanesque heritage.
You will find the Barcedana Valley to the north of the Montsec de Rubies Sierra, where it cuts through the Llimiana Sierra, allowing its waters to drain into the Terradets reservoir; it forms part of a large municipality that is composed of three small villages. This is a valley with steep slopes and deep ravines but which has an age-old tradition of dry-land farming, in which the cultivation of olives has always played a leading role.
This day, with its rather limited views, combines well with the second, on which you will enjoy extensive panoramic views of Llimiana and look out over the entrance to the Tremp basin.
Mas de Bruquet-Barcedana-Mas de Bruquet
Leave from Mas de Bruquet following the path leading to the farmsteads of Sorri, Perevilà and Martineu. Then go on to the Barranc del Boter ravine, which will take you down to the rest area on the Pelat Plain. Once there, follow the River Barcedana to the foot of Montsec de Rúbies, carrying on until you reach the Barcedana bridge. You should then return home following the road.
