Heiligtum Meritxell- Ausichtspunkt - Roc del Quer- Sant Joan de Caselles
Erika Wellmer went for a hike.
April 2, 2021
I started hiking in the village of PRATS - but if you want you can start right at the Meritxell shrine. There is also a small bar there to drink coffee before the start. The hike leads through a pine forest with a few steep climbs on the sunny side of the Valira valley. We pass the BORDAS DE MEREIG. From there it is 15 minutes to the spectacular ROC DEL QUER viewpoint. It continues on the old ways. We descend at the BORDAS (old stone barns) bus to our destination: the small Romanesque church of Sant Joan de Caselles.Insider tip:Visiting the Meritxell sanctuary is free. In the small bar opposite the Hotel Babot ... there is good coffee with milk ... a few souvenirs and Andorran stamps.Notes: There are a couple of shorter quite steep climbs and descents.
