Route 10. The mountain and the hermitage of Sant Roc.
From the center of the village in Sant Martí de Llémena go until the lawn field behind the Town Hall, which is near the rectory of the church. At the left end of the field there is a path to the right that goes into the forest and that crosses the ridge of Sant Roc. Follow this path to the forest trail that links Sant Climent d'Amer with the village of Barroca. Take the trail to the left and start climbing until the top of the cliff. Once up walk about 1.5km until you find a crossroads marked with a sign. Optionally you can detour to the hermitage of Santa Lena and once visited, return to this crossroad and take the path on the left (do not follow the path of Sant Climent d'Amer). Later you will find a junction where you must turn right and soon you will reach the nose of the ridge of Sant Roc. Continue along the path that leads to the east until you reach the hermitage of Sant Roc de la Barroca (be careful not to approach the cliffs). To return to the starting point follow the stone path that leaves the other side of the hermitage and that leads you back to the track used uphill. Walk by this forest track for 2km until you find a narrow path on the right hand side. That is marked with stone landmarks and descends in a pronounced way the risk. This path will take you back to Sant Martí de Llémena.
