Water trail


On this route, you will be able to admire the most unique places that surround Santa Coloma, the Sant Salvador Park.

On the one hand, the Water Trail runs from the spa Termes Orion to the Picant fountain. This is a very easy route that crosses the park with its fountains, following the stream. If you are very observant, while you follow the Water Trail you will find three indicators of the el Rocar Trail, that correspond to the three possible routes to climb the mountain.

This is a lineal itinerary that can be done in two sections, the first one will take around 10 minutes (700 meters) and it will take you under the magnificent plane trees of the Sant Salvador park, until one of the most charming parts of the park, the Picant fountain. This fountain has really characteristic iron rich water. 

The second section of this route it is a bit longer, it will take you around 20 minutes to walk through the 1,7 km that are part of it. This section goes on the opposite direction of the previous one, this time we will go toward the Sant Salvador fountain, a big rock from which three spouts emerge. 

We will have to follow the path flanked by plane trees until we get to the spa Termes Orion, an impressive neoclassical style white spa with colonial inspiration. Once we arrive we will have to turn around and come back from where we came from until the starting point. 

As you can see this is a simple itinerary, ideal to make with your family!
