The Gurri environmental route runs along the entire banks of the Gurri River from the meanders of Benages to Les Casasses in an uninterrupted manner with a route of more than 8 km. The route allows you to take a nice walk along the banks of the river Gurri, alternating the right and left banks.
It starts in the meanders of Benages (15), on the old road to Taradell along a small path on the left bank of the river.
The meanders are a reflection of the meandering course that the Gurri has when it crosses the Plana de Vic. The meander is a curve that describes the river when the slope is very low. In this case we can see a double meander.
We cross the river to the right bank, by a specially enabled step and we find indications of the Font dels Frares (14), in terms of Santa Eugènia de Berga. This fountain, now lost, has always been a very popular place for locals to go for walks and meetings, especially in the summer.
Further down, we cross the river again to the left bank by a lever and arrive at El Mercè (13), a farmhouse listed with quality Baroque elements, probably from 1672.
Later we reach the Torrent de Sant Jaume and cross it by a newly built walkway. It is a P1010633.JPG torrent that collects the waters of the Malla area, nowadays derived before entering Vic. In the past, the torrent flowed into the Méder River just before the confluence with the Gurri and was diverted to its present point. Finally, we pass by the confluence (12) between the Gurri River and the Méder River. The confluence of the two rivers becomes an interesting space as a biological connection node between two basins with different origins. We end the route in the Xavier Roca Viñas park (5) where we can continue along the route of the Pont del Bruguer.
Part of the route is adapted for blind people and people with reduced mobility.
Distance: approximately 2 km.
Accumulated difference in level: not appreciated
Duration: 1/2 hour approx.
The route can start in the Xavier Roca i Viñas park (5), near the confluence of the Gurri and the Méder. In this park there is a sculpture dedicated to the Assembly of Catalonia, the work of Joan Furriols from Vigo.
Following the river on its left bank we can see the old meander of the Pas (6), just as the river makes a sharp turn of 90º. In the early twentieth century the river flowed through this ancient meander, today only visible by the presence of an alignment of poplars. A river blow and severe flooding caused the river to deviate from the current channel.
Later we find the source of the Pas (7), recovered in 2010, after many years gone.
When the river rises we reach the Iron Bridge (8), an architectural element built by the Land and Maritime Machinist of Barcelona in 1930. At this point we change the bank of the river and reach the area of Cantarell, where we can deviate, with the permission of its owners, to visit the oak grove of Cantarell (10), a unique place, very popular among the people of Vic, made up of martinique oaks that reach 300 years old, along with some grids and poplars.
The path leads to the Bruguer Bridge (9), a magnificent Gothic construction from the 14th century that has the status of a national historical-artistic monument.
From here we can follow the path parallel to the river passing by the recently recovered Font del Cantarell (11) (formerly called Font d’en Bruguer) and head downstream towards the area of Les Casasses.
If we wish, we can cross the Bruguer bridge and continue the route following the Anella Verda de Vic, towards the Puig dels Jueus or the banks of the Gurri.
Distance: approximately 5.1 km.
Accumulated difference in level: not appreciated
Duration: On foot: 1h and 10 minutes. By bike: 40 minutes approx.
From the Bruguer bridge (9) we follow the river down a slightly elevated path with respect to the river level. We will pass under the new bridge that connects Vic with the Bruguer estate and we will reach the meanders of La Codineta, where there is a small picnic area. This meander, less marked than the others we found upstream, forms a space of great landscape quality.
We will reach a sign indicating the source of the Tiberius, now lost and pending restoration. There is a small stone wall and the original spout.
We will pass by Molí del Llobet, an old flour mill, which was probably renovated and enlarged in the first quarter of the 20th century. The water was collected by a canal from the Cantarell dam located upstream.
The path passes under the road bridge of Roda and reaches the environmental zone of Les Casasses, currently under development, where we can currently find an area of regulated urban gardens and also an Arboretum of fruit trees, which has recovered species and native varieties that were lost.
In this area we find the last meander, that of Les Casasses, before the end of the route when we reach the bridge of the Transversal axis (C-25), where the municipality of Vic ends, passing to Gurb.
From this point we can still continue along the road near Gurri to the river Ter, following the signs of the Alba-Ter consortium.
