7. From Cases de Posada to Busa passing through el Grau de l’Areny
Distance: 11,6 km
ROUTE N. 7
This is a route to enjoy the nature and to deepen into the history and the culture of la Vall de Lord. This is a circular route which passes through the trails and pathways surrounded by forests composed of scots pine and little crops fields. The Busa’s mountain range forms a wide high plateau, called el pla de Busa. This grassland is like a natural island placed over the crags of the Busa’s mountain range and offers magnificent panoramic views of la Vall de Lord and the La Llosa del Cavall’s reservoir. In the north-western end of the plateau, we must emphasise the point known as el Capolatell, also called as Busa’s prison because of its use with this purpose during the Peninsular War (1808-14). You can access to the prison by a metal footbridge.
