Hiking |Circular route to l'Areny
This is a circular itinerary that begins in L’Ermita (Hermitage) car park and is indicated by yellow trail markings on the rocks or trees. At the first fork you have to choose whether to go right (straight on) or left. The most commonly taken route is to the right, towards the Cova Foradada (Holed Cave) and then down the Escales del Diable (Devil’s Stairs), following the cliff towards L’Areny. You arrive at the arena-shaped "Clot or Pla de l'Areny" from where the route continues south until you come to a path that leads to another fork where you continue to the left, towards the Hermitage. The views from the highest point are magnificent with the Chapel, Mont-roig town and the Mediterranean Sea in the background.
This route is not suitable for people with vertigo or a fear of heights, nor for families with young children, due to the slopes along the cliffs leading to L’Areny. There are however other paths that take you to L’Areny without any difficulty. They begin in the Cova del Patou car park at the foot of the Hermitage.
If you would like to get to know L’Areny a little better, we recommend a visit to the lesser-known natural secrets of Mont-roig and Miami.
