"LITTLE TRAIN ROUTE": PALAMÓS - PALAFRUGELL
The route
The “little train” greenway runs for 6 km between Palamós and Palafrugell along the disused narrowgauge railway track formerly linking Palamós with Girona via La Bisbal d’Empordà. The route goes through the municipal areas of Palamós, Mont-ras and Palafrugell, with branch greenways leading off to Vall-llòbrega and Castell and La Fosca beaches.

The narrow-gauge train consisting of a series of tiny carriages made its first trip on 23 March 1887, pulled for several kilometres alongside the old thoroughfare by a Belgian-manufactured steam engine.

Today’s main road covers over part of the former railway line, but the greenway stretch enables visitors to explore the same Empordanet landscapes as described by Palafrugell writer Josep Pla and to traverse the rich agricultural plain of Aubí, surrounded by the Gavarres Massif and Begur mountains.
