About Sant Quirze De Besora Montesquiu Castle Waterfall:

This is a MEDUIM-HARD circular route of 18km. The paths are mostly gravel roads and well trodden rural walking paths, all in good condition. I recommend allowing 7-9 hours to complete the route and return to Sant Quirze de Besora station.

The first point of interest on this route is Montesquiu Castle. It is possible to visit the interior of the castle. Opening times and prices to visit Montesquiu Castle can be found on the website.

After this castle the route takes rural gravel roads through Pre-Pyrenees cattle grazing land and forestal tracks to the ruined castle of Besora which has spectacular 360 panoramic views.

From this ruined castle the route goes down via more stone farmhouses to the village of Besora then on through more grazing hills to the Mir river which is crossed via a wooden bridge infront of a weir. A little furter we pass the abandoned and ruined stone watermills and arrive at the 40m high Mir waterfall.

After the waterfall the route takes an uphill forestal path to a ridgeline with some great viewpoints. Follow the ridgeline path leading back to Sant Quirze de Besora.
