How can I get there?
Both from the Bisbal d'Empordà, to the north, and from Calonge, to the south, we will take the road that crosses the Gavarres and that connects both localities (C-31) and, once we have arrived at the pass of the Ganga, the highest point of the route, we will take the track that starts from here to the east and goes to Santa Coloma de Fitor.
You can also access it from Fonteta, along the path of the stream of the Jonquet, or from Vall-llobrega and Palamós, along the path of Puig Cargol. Motorised access is restricted in summer due to the risk of fire.
