Mines of Beça Route

Altitude Routes / Bike

The ‘cuts’ resulting from the old open-air mining, the meandering of the river, the feeling of tranquility and isolation, are just some of the attributes of this 17 km course that takes you to know some of the most beautiful sites of Beça.

The course was done thinking about a quiet bike trip but has some more challenging sections, be careful, particularly in crossing the river made through stones.
