Description

Els Àngels is a classic climb, that’s part of a popular cycling loop from Girona. The gradients are never too intense, and the first climb starts just 3 or 4 kilometres from Girona. A winding road that takes you up to the hilltop Santuari dels Angels, the chapel where Salvador Dali got married. It’s about 15km east of Girona. The views are fantastic and, at the top of the hill, you’re rewarded with a great little cafe, too.
The climb was made famous by Armstrong: locals say he loved it for a short high-intensity training ride.
