Trail running route description
We will start our route at the seafront in Sitges. We will see some grand mansions looking directly out to sea and as we continue running along the beach, we will come to la Punta de les Coves. Following the GR-92 to Vilanova i la Geltrú we will follow a rocky path close to the Mediterranean Sea.
The GR 92 is one of the extensive long hiking network of footpaths. GR 92 stretches 583km from Portbou down to Ulldecona along the Mediterranean coast.
On arriving in Vilanova, we will see a machine-gun nest, built to guard the beach during the Civil War (1936-1939). Vilanova, along with several other sites, built fortifications to counter a potential attack by sea from Franco’s troops.
Following our route, we will arrive at Sant Cristòfol Ligthouse beach; in the same beach area you can find the Sant Cristòfol Hermitage which dates back to the 14th century, acquired by Eugeni d'Ors in 1944 and which was then called the Acadèmia del Far, a meeting place in its day for writers, artists and philosophers.
We will spend part of the morning there and when we finish, the bus will stop at some sports facilities with swimming pool. After changing our clothes we will go to the center of the city.
