ACTIVITIES IN THE VALLEY OF CAMPRODON AND PYRENEES OF GIRONA
What to do in the Camprodon Valley?
The Hotel Grèvol Spa is a hotel in the Camprodon Valley. The Camprodon Valley, located in the easternmost part of the Ripollès, and as the vertex of the junction of the Ter and Ritort rivers, is ideal to take a break and enjoy its landscape.

Medieval village of Prats de Molló: Prats de Molló and La Presta is the largest commune in the department, and one of the largest in France. The set of territory is very mountainous and is excavated by the valley of the Tech, whose source is located at 2,300 meters of altitude, at the foot of Roca Colom. The Prats valley is full of vestiges of ancient villages, some of which still conserve a church and a few inhabitants. Among them stands out La Presta, with its lovely hot springs.
Castle of Rocabruna: The castle of Rocabruna is located on the Tossal del Castell, a hill surrounded by cliffs. Located at 995m altitude, it offers interesting views over the Pyrenees and Alta Garrotxa. Its origins date back to the 10th century and conservation tasks are currently being carried out. The name of the castle comes from the color of the soil and the surrounding stones
