Girona is known as a paradise for cyclists for a good reason: the city offers the perfect base to discover the numerous climbs in its surroundings.
20 km from Girona, on an indescribable road on the outskirts of the city of Banyoles, overlooking the bright blue lake, is the mountain of Puigsou, also known as the climb of Rocacorba. At the time a well-kept secret among connoisseurs, is now possibly one of the best known climbs in the area of Girona and one of the first places that people go when visiting the city on two wheels.
In addition to its location, part of the attraction of Rocacorba is the challenge of the climb itself, there are few similar climbs in the area measured by its inclination and length. The reward, however, is enormous: the Rocacorba sanctuary rises above a rather curious cliff (shaped like a ship) and offers a panoramic view tyou will fall in love with. Do not let others tell you about it!
