During the route we follow paths from the Itinerànnia footpath network to illustrate the traingle of love and death between Albert, Ivo and Coral·lí that Vayreda wove in his novel.

The starting point for this literary route is Sadernes, accessible by motor vehicle. Leave the car in the parking and take the Itinerant’s path which found it at the end of the stairs.

Following the yellow marks we found the signpost G32 «Molí d'en Galceran» which continue on the direction that marks Molí d'en Galceran. Following the marks we found the signpost G40 Pont d'en Valentí, continue direction “Oix 4h 35min”

30 minuts later we found a new signpost, G37 la Muntada which follow it direction also «Oix 4h 05 min». When we found the G38 Coll del Molí de Sant Aniol, take the direction to «Vila-roja» just the signpost g39 «Sant Aniol d'Aguja», our destination.

The return will be the same way.
