Description This route crosses the inland fields of l'Ampoll running between olive groves and carob trees. Every so often, like the grooves on crusty bread, the flat fields are dissected by gullies. Almost always sleepy and dry, the gullies give testimony to the past ferocity of the Mediterranean waters. With many a sleepless night, the farmers in the area have inch by inch, by the sweat of their brow and using stones, brought the surrounding areas under their control. This route runs along an open landscape; a product of the elements that went into creating it: the stones dragged along by streams have been used to build the farmhouses, to construct walls to mark the boundaries of land ownership and to support the earth along the slopes of the gullies.
