How can I get there?

From Lleida you have to take the C-1313 towards Balaguer. When we arrive at Vilanova de la Barca we will turn off to the left and head to the Corbins and Torrelameu road. At the exit of the village, just before crossing the river Segre, a path goes to the left, which we must follow north, always trying to get closer to the river, and which will take us to the Sot del Fuster along the path of the river.
