Climb Description

Els Angels from Girona is a very gentle climb in the Catalonia region. It is very popular with both professional and amateur cyclists thanks to its proximity to the city of Girona, and it is one of the best ways to leave the city on a bike.

The climb finishes at the Els Angels chapel and is in trees throughout the ascent, so there are no spectacular views. Nevertheless, it is a quiet and pleasant climb which takes you from the foothills of the Pyrenees, to the flat lands around the Costa Brava (Wild Coast).

Els Angels is open throughout the year.
