This itinerary runs along the ancient road that linked the villages ofCanet and Adri. We will enjoy the panoramic views of the Rocacorba’s mountains, the volcano of Puig d’Adri and the natural volcanic pools at “la Font de la Torre”. Start your walk in the car park near the church of Sant Vicenç de Canet. Follow the path that goes through the left side of the church, between fields and farmhouses, and cross the plain of “La Torre” until arriving at the paved road. Cross to the other side of the asphalt and turn left up in direction to the slope of the Puig. Once up the Puig, the trail climbs slightly through a forest of holm-oaks, just before beginning to descend towards the village of Adri, where we will find the Romanesque church and the rectory of Sant Llorenç d'Adri. To return to Canet from the village of Adri it’s necessary to undo a section of the way to join a track that goes up surrounding the volcano Puig d’Adri. Along the route observe the pyroclastic deposits in some margins of the fields, as well as old dry stone walls that are testimony of the cultivation of vineyards that existed in the place. Return to Canet following a comfortable but stony track until crossing the GIV-5313 road. At this point cross the other side until a path on the left that leads to the little jewel of the natural pools of “Font de la Torre”. Just in front of the road leading to the pools there is the Valer Street. Follow this street to return to the starting point.
Attractions: Fountain of la Torre and natural pools, Puig d’Adri volcano, Sant Llorenç d’Adri church.
