Leave Oix on the GR1 Sendero Historico route, and ascend to the forested mountain tops surrounded by panoramic views of the limestone cliffs. Descend through oak forest to the Puente de Llierca, a Romanesque bridge dating back to the 11th century before reaching the village of Tortella and finally Sales de Llierca, where your home for the night is a beautiful 18th century stone manor house hotel.


The Pont de Llierca bridge a couple of kilometres before Tortella is a good place to stop and take in the scenery with a picnic today. You can request this the night before from your hotel in Oix as there are no shops in Oix and nowhere to get supplies before Tortella today. User
