The Picassian Nature Route is an activity that blends contact with the spectacular canyon of the Estrets River with a visit to the cultural heritage of the villages of Arnes and Horta de Sant Joan.
A day-long escapade to the enchanting villages and landscapes that Malaga born painter Pablo Picasso fell in love with when he stayed in Horta de Sant Joan.
Here we suggest a natural and cultural route to discover the best-preserved architectural jewels of two of the most beautiful villages of the Terra Alta while strolling along emblematic streets rich with palaces, castles and walls full of stories and testimonies yet to be discovered.
An ideal activity for families, lovers of cultural tourism and for all those who wish to know the historical, artistic and natural heritage of a unique territory located in the heart of the Ports Natural Park.
Our experienced cultural guides will take you through places they know perfectly well while transmitting all the information about these historical sites and their valuable heritage, including legends, myths and anecdotes.
The first part of the activity takes place in plain nature. We will go to the entrance of the valley of the Estrets River and walk through this spectacular setting. Then we will go to the neighbouring village of Arnes and visit the sites of historical and artistic interest.
After lunch, in Horta de Sant Joan we will visit the old quarter of this town and see the mark that the famous painter Pablo Picasso left on it.
Slow travel visits to discover a unique heritage!
