We start this stretch from Tinglado del Port, kilometre 0 of the Girona greenways. We will follow this infrastructure along 100 km from here to Olot. You can’t miss it. All you need to do is follow the constant Greenways signs. Most of the surface is of compact gravel, although this is combined with some asphalt roads on the more urban parts of the route.

This space houses an interpretation centre with artefacts related to the railways, a railway engine and two carriages. An explanation is given here of the transformation from railway line to greenway, the arrival at the port, and the beneficiaries of the greenways. We can also find information on the Secrets of the Greenways, a project which aims to interpret the area and will help us to get to know and interpret the historical and natural heritage of the greenways and their immediate surroundings. We can obtain published paper guides here and also find out more about applications for mobile phones (Girona e-routes) with geo-referenced audiovisual information. 

We will also be provided with the range of nautical and sea activities available (kayaking, snorkelling, scuba-diving, sailing, etc.) at the coast, and will be able to book or reserve these activities from here. It is important to note that the coastline that runs from Sant Feliu south is one of the richest sea areas in terms of biodiversity of the entire Costa Brava. This fact is evident in the wide range of nautical and especially underwater activities available.

Kayaking is worth a special mention as it is considered to be the cycle tourism of the coast, according to those who practice it, since it allows you to cover long distances of the coastline without the aid of a motor and using the energy of your own body, thus impacting as little as possible on the environment. 

The old part of Castell d’Aro, located on top of a hill to the right of our route, emerged alongside the Benedormiens Castle (11th century). The entire village, with its medieval streets, was declared an historic-artistic site in 1971. The Castle is a military fortress built to protect the Vall d’Aro from military attacks. Near the castle we can find the Doll Museum with a permanent collection of more than 800 pieces from different countries and dating from the 19th century up to today.
