Tips

    Turning off the main road, the climb tilts up a super narrow road. The gradient constantly oscillates between 4 to 8%, giving amazing views back to the coastline. Just half a kilometre before the top the road steepens to a punishing 14%. At the top resides a chapel from which the climb derives its name as well as a lively bar where you can refill your bottles.

    Nice Col before you arrive to Tossa de Mar

    It will a definitely advisable to climb up from the inland/Llagostera side and descend towards the coast. The climb is a bit longer but quite easy to tackle. Save some energy for the coastal road though. In either direction to Tossa or St Feliu it still goes a bit up and down...

    After the amazing descent from Sant Grau, the subsequent road toward St Feliu has to be one of the most beautiful rides in Europe. Its stunning. Green verdant mountains, corner after corner revealing beautiful little coves, on fabulous smooth road surfaces, and all balanced against an azure sea. This ride will stick in my memory for a very long time. It is quite possibly my favourite all time ride.

    Most climb from the ocean side and descend to Llagostera. Complete the loop in reverse and descend towards the coast for spectacular views and sick switch backs

    Gentle climb from Llagosterra, nice descent towards the sea.
