Rotova Circuit

In 2011 a fire burnt a large area of this walk. Although the burnt trees are sad to see the walk was not ruined as the fire exposed the rugged terrain and created a dramatic effect. A very pleasant path leads up to the Castel which was built on a pinnacle of rock that seems to have been placed ideally for the purpose. The Castel is viewed from many different angles as the walk progresses. After exploring the Castel ruins there is a gentle climb up to the lookout on Penal De L’Estruca. Stop to admire the views before tackling the more demanding ascent to reach the Alt De Sagueiles, a great place for lunch. The return to the start is downhill all the way.

Most of the signposts were destroyed by the fire although many of the direction fingers are still intact and lying on the ground. Hopefully these will be repaired in the near future and with this in mind signs have been included in the instructions.
