A moderate walk mainly on good tracks and paths with one unavoidable steep scramble. Not all the paths are well marked so some path finding skills are necessary. The route takes us around the interesting Fontilles leper colony, founded in 1902. This is a peaceful, spiritual place that warrants a separate visit. There is an information centre on the grounds.
The steep unavoidable scramble (with good foot and hand holds) takes us up the little tossal north of the Fontilles centre. The climb rewards us with spectacular views of the colony buildings and the impressive wall that encloses them. 

WALK SPECS: DISTANCE 10.2 km. -  WALKING TIME 3  hrs.  ASCENT 420mtrs. GRADE M Scr.
