The route of the Dolmens - mas torrencito

We can leave the car in the car park of the CAT (Center d'Acollida Turística) in Vilajuïga. We will cross the town along Carrer Figueres to the square, where we will turn left, now along Carrer Sant Sebastià. We will leave the Plaça de la Sardana on our right and continue straight on until we pass under the road. There, we will begin to see painted signs of Itinerànnia: the first indicates that we have to turn right. The route of the Dolmens - mas torrencito

We can leave the car in the car park of the CAT (Center d'Acollida Turística) in Vilajuïga. We will cross the town along Carrer Figueres to the square, where we will turn left, now along Carrer Sant Sebastià. We will leave the Plaça de la Sardana on our right and continue straight on until we pass under the road. There, we will begin to see painted signs of Itinerànnia: the first indicates that we have to turn right.

We will continue towards the urbanization and we will go up to the top, where we will find a path to the right without asphalt. After a few meters, at a crossroads of three paths, we have to be very attentive and continue along the path to the right, which runs alongside the fields. We will follow one side of the road until we find a small group of houses called Can Rebequer and, we will continue down the other side of the road, until we cross the road. We will continue along the path, always on the right bank of the stream. The path makes a 9º turn to the left, crosses the stream and begins to climb. On this climb we will find the dolmens of Vinya del Rei, Garrollar, La Talaia, Les Ruïnes and La Carena, an exceptional view on the Alt Empordà plain, until we cross the road.

We will continue along the right edge of the road, approximately a hundred meters, until the next curve. On the right, we will find the Dolmen de les Vinyes Mortes I and then we will take a path that leads to the Dolmen de les Vinyes Mortes II, following the side of the mountain. The path runs through the forest until it reaches the Dolmen de les Vinyes Mortes II. Now we go back up a bit until we find the road again, cross it and continue on the other side. We will pass through Mas Margall and we will go back towards the road, which we have to cross again.

We are at the AE154 - Cista del Coll del Bosc de la Margalla junction. We follow the direction of the banner that indicates Pau 1h 10 ′. To our right we will see the Dolmen of the Margalla appointment: we go back again and we follow the path that goes down the mountain. In this section there are several yellow graffiti that can confuse us. We will always follow the ones that are made with a template of about 3 cm high and 10 wide. The road has no loss. We go down and enjoying the wonderful views of the Gulf of Roses to our left.

We will find a white cross, the only monumental cross testimony of the ancient territory of the Monestir de Sant Pere de Rodes that has survived to this day, and we continue until we reach Pau. We have to cross the town, which is perfectly signposted, and head towards the main road. We will find the AE156 junction. We have to take the direction Vilajuïga indicates 40 minutes: it is the street that is on our right, a little before reaching the crossroads. The road continues straight ahead until it reaches Vilajuïga.
