Tips

  • Girona Enjoy Sport

    At the top of the Els Angels climb, there is a monastery, with a cafe and restaurant, a large terrace with fantastic views to the Pyrenees, Garrotxa and the Mediterranean Sea, and toilets. It is also the location of the finish and podium celebration for the annual Els Angels Hill Climb Time Trial.

    Ascending Els Angels from the west, heading out of Girona, is one of the most popular climbs in the region.

    Simply take the GIV-6703, leave La Creueta and carry on east following the signs for Els Angels. The fist 1k is quite gentle, but kilometers 2 and 3 may seem like a bit of a drag. It does get easier after that until the last couple of kilometers before the summit.

    The hardest bit about climbing Els Angels is probably the length of the climb, just over 10km, and the easier gradients in the middle really allow you to take a breather and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

    Nice view all around and a restaurant/cafe to buy some refreshments.

    The point of Els Angels where you can see views on both sides, from the entire braza coast to the entire Pyrenees mountain range

    Els Angels is one of the most famous climbs at the gates of Girona. If you hit it directly, you're basically right in the middle of it as soon as you get on your bike. Warmup? None. So if you prefer to warm up the approximately ten kilometers, you'd better do a lap beforehand. The climb itself is not particularly steep, but it is very varied: Tight curves, straight passages, shady wooded areas and open sections with a wonderful view of the mountains - here all the senses get their money's worth! At the top there is a nice reward with a beautiful panoramic view and a café.

    One of the classic climbs near Girona, actually just a couple of kms from the city centre.
    This 10km long climb is almost traffic-free, you can encounter hundred bikes and no cars at all while riding this.
    You can reach the top also from Madremanya for a shorter but steeper effort.
    Personally, I love the views from the top and from the road during sunrise or sunset.

    A Classic! Accessible from a multitude of very diverse paths. Whether by road bike, gravel or mountain bike, the effort to get there is always worth it.

    Perfect spot to stop, refuel and enjoy the view before descending back to Girona or Madremanya
