We leave Siurana along Carrer de Baix, cross the stream and go to the right where we take the Camí de la Ribera, which immediately turns left. We leave the asphalt and continue along this path, it is the so-called Siurana path. We pass by Can Palol and later by Can Torres. We come to another path and go to the right, until after a few meters we turn right again. On this path we can start find yellow Itinerànnia marks. We will go straight for about a kilometer until we reach the road. We will continue straight on very carefully, we will have to do about 500 meters along the road and we will reach Baseia.
Baseia is a small aggregate of a few houses. It has been documented since 1067. It was formerly known as (Basilia or Basella). It had a castle, whose lords (surnamed Basella) were feudal lords of the counts of Empúries. The houses have been preserved maintaining the old structure and many elements from the 15th to the 17th century are visible, engraved lintels, windows framed with stone or remains of a medieval one, in Cal Robusto.
After the nucleus we will go to the left, we will continue following the yellow marks, that will take us until the mas de la Brava, where we will find the crossing of Itinerànnia AE210, we will go to the right in the direction of Tonyà. We cross the paved track and continue straight until we reach a farm and turn right, after a few meters following this path we go to the left. We will continue along this track, which will turn right and continue parallel to the train track to where the track can be crossed. On the other side of the road we see the AE209 Tonyà junction but we will not go there. We leave the yellow marks and go along the path on the right to return to Siurana. The path goes between fields until we turn left through the forest, cross the stream and follow the path that falls to the right. We will arrive at another path, turn left and take this path that goes to the boundary between field and forest. We will skirt the whole field, approaching the train track, we will go a bit parallel to the track and we will turn right again along another path between fields that will take us to the GIV-6219 road. We turn left and we will do about 100 meters, very carefully, along the road, until the fork, where we will go to the right. We will continue along the paved road that is the Camino del Collet that will take us to Siurana. We will follow it for about a kilometer, at the end it ends at Camí de la Ribera. When we find a crossroads of three paths, we will turn left to take Carrer de Baix towards the village, where we started the route.
