This is a comfortable jaunt around a valley to the south of Banyuls-sur-Mer. It involves gentle climb to Puig del Mas followed by a short but steep climb along the beginning of the ‘Chemin de Walter Benjamin’

A one and a half hour circuit in the footsteps of the French and Spanish soldiers who fought in the bloody battle of Le Boulou, it is a historical eye opener. Stunning views over the Albères, Roussillon plain as far as the Med and across to Mount Canigo, are a stark contrast to the bloody tableau of wounded and dying, which once stained this peaceful landscape.
