Narrow-Gauge Railway Route I:New underpass in Montfullà, Bescanó
Greenways Consortium >> Who we are
Presentation

The Girona greenways, awarded Second Prize for European Greenways 2003, allow users to go from the enchanting Pyrenees down to the warm Costa Brava by bicycle or on a pleasant hike. The route takes you through five of the eight Girona counties: Baix Empordà, Gironès, La Selva, Garrotxa and Ripollès. 
 
Running for 125 kilometres, the route is structured into four sections: the Iron and Coal Route, which goes from Ripoll to Ogassa via Sant Joan de les Abadesses; the Olot-Girona Narrow-Gauge Railway Route, which goes from Olot to Girona passing through the towns in the valleys of the rivers Ter, Brugent and Fluvià, the Girona-Sant Feliu de Guíxols Narrow-Gauge Railway Route, which starts out from Girona, traverses the eastern flank of the depression of La Selva as far as Llagostera, and from there follows the valley of the Riudaura to emerge on the Mediterranean coastline in the town of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, and the "Little Train Route" between Palamós and Palafrugell. 
 
The four greenways are managed by a single body: the Girona Greenways Consortium. The Consortium is made up of the twenty-eight town councils of the towns through which the greenways run, together with Girona Provincial Council.
 
The historical background of these greenways has to be sought in the network of narrow-gauge railways that served to link towns in the Girona counties. At the end of the 19th century the private initiative of the industrial bourgeoisie, with the support of the citizens and technical backing from civil engineers, led to implantation of the so-called “economic trains” in order to increase the circulation of goods and improve access to the port zones. That represented a significant advance in industrialisation and communication between towns.
 
The recovery of these railways lines, which in past years ensured good relations between the towns they linked, today affords an opportunity to discover the cultural, historical and landscape wealth of these lands, either on foot or cycling. The lie of the land and the great variety of landscapes make this an ideal region for cycletouring and hiking.

Girona Greenways Consortium

The Girona Greenways Consortium is a public body with an associative character which is institutional and local in nature and comprises the Girona Regional Council and the municipalities and town councils indicated in the statutes. It manages the four routes that make up the Girona Greenways. Its main objectives are to maintain and improve the infrastructure of the greenways, to promote their use and to extend the network.

ORIGINS

The Girona Greenways Consortium was founded in 2003, when the Girona Regional Council approved its statutes and they were subsequently published in the Official Provincial Gazette. The current consortium includes the previous consortiums created in order to rehabilitate the old track and the subsequent management of the works and the infrastructure: the Girona-Sant Feliu de Guíxols Railway Route Consortium and the Olot-Girona Narrow-Gauge Railway Route Consortium.

Actually, the consortium has also the management of a new route, created in 2013: Pirinexus, 353 km of cyclable territory, linking Girona province and south of France.
