Ramat de Camins

The trekking of the 70 Pyrenean villages which follows the footsteps of the journey taken by the writers Camilo José Cela and Josep Maria Espinás in 1956 around the Pyrenees.

The route is a backbone with many optins, a fact that enriches and brings great diversity to the route. Its 15 stages are the main itinerary and, from there, each one can decide and move freely at the moment of doing the trekking depending on the days available, their physical condition, the weather, etc.

We also divided the stages into three different sections: Eastern Ramat, Northern Ramat and Western Ramat.

The Ramat de Camins trek was born in 1956, as a result of a walking trip taken by the writers and hikers Camilo José Cela (Padrón, 1916 – Madrid, 2002) and Josep Maria Espinàs (Barcelona, ​​1927) around four of the counties in Alt Pirineu & Aran: Pallars Jussà, Pallars Sobirà, Val d'Aran and Alta Ribagorça.

From this trip, two different books were published: Viaje al Pirineo de Lérida (Destino, 1965) and Viatge al Pirineu de Lleida (Selecta, 1957). The latter was later revised and retitled as A peu pel Pallars i la Vall d'Aran (Campana, 2000).

Fifty years later, the writer and hiker Núria Garcia Quera (Barcelona, ​​1965) made a version of that route and, later, wrote her own account of the trip. The result was the book Nou viatge al Pirineu (Sensus, 2012) and it implied the birth of the Ramat de Camins route, a two-week trek that, just like the great classic routes of other mountain ranges in the world, runs through the traditional roads and goes from town to town, crossing some mountain passes.
