This itinerary invites you to link the church of Pedret - an architectural gem of the region - with its surroundings, and especially with the river that receives it, the Llobregat.
The itinerary begins on the Pont de Pedret, a splendid bridge of medieval origin about 80 m long, on the river Llobregat. After crossing it, you have to turn off along the path that goes to the right parallel to the river, following the old royal road that passes by the ruins of the old Pedret mill (18th - 19th centuries). , very close to the bridge. After the mill, the path begins to gain altitude and offers captivating and unexpected views over the river.

After a while, you will pass the fisherman's house and the fountain, and rediscover the Pedret bridge.
Once here, it is imperative to cross the bridge again and climb the old path, on the left that leads to the church of Sant Quirze de Pedret and pay a visit if you have not done so before starting. the itinerary. It is one of the best preserved examples of pre-Romanesque religious architecture in Catalonia, built in the Carolingian period (9th-10th centuries).
