A part of the route that is very similar to the last one: farm tracks paved with concrete, and some short steep sections, but where flat stretches predominate. 

Heading north from Sant Pau, the valley is known as the Vall de Camprodon and is a clearly differentiated unit, with links to Olot and historically linked to the Count of Besalú and the Bishop of Girona. An example of the latter are the very well conserved remains of the Capsacosta Roman Road, which linked Sant Pau with la Vall de Bianya, and which we can still follow today. This link is also reflected in Catalan literature by the legend of the Sailor of Sant Pau by Jacint Verdaguer. 

The most notable architectural feature of this village is the Romanesque Church of Sant Pau de Segúries, the first mention of which dates back to 920.

This town sprang up around the Monastery of Sant Pere, and has been popular with tourists since the start of the 19th century. This was when the first hikers and members of the Barcelona middle class arrived, the latter building their summer residences here, in modernist style, along the town’s two main streets, the Font Nova and Passeig Maristany. The Prime Minister of the Second Spanish Republic, Juan Negrín, lived in one of these houses. The town’s popularity with tourists also explains the intense commercial activity and the production of artisan products such as sausages and biscuits. 

Built in the middle of the 20th century, the embellishment of this monastery with cantilevers and cornices and the quadrangular distribution of the apse, mean it can be considered a construction more typical of the Cistercian Order than the Benedictine Order.

Built in the 12th century, this bridge spans the River Ter in the town centre, and must be crossed when going towards La Cerdanya Region. 

Museum dedicated to the Catalan composer who was born in this town in 1860. Each year a music festival named after him is held in Camprodon.
