The second stage starts off following the coastline until we enter the Castell-Cap Roig Protected Natural Area, of considerable scenic interest, where we’ll ride along a gravel path for a few kilometres.
Without leaving the coastline, we’ll head towards Calella de Palafrugell and LLafranc, two villages that best preserve the old atmosphere of traditional fishing villages. After leaving LLafranc, we have to climb the 170-metre cliff where the Sant Sebastià lighthouse stands, a short but steep slope that will offer us the marvellous views of the sea that can be seen from the lighthouse presiding over the cliff. We’ll continue in a northerly direction, passing through the small, idyllic villages of Tamariu and Fornells, where we can make a stop to have a drink or bathe in the crystalline waters.
Before we get to Girona, we’ll have to overcome the last mountain pass of the day, the legendary Els Àngels, the most popular ascent in the Costa Brava for professionals and cycling fans. After reaching the top, we’ll go back down to end the day enjoying the city that has become a paradise for cyclists.
