Beautiful half day route, where we can enjoy mountains, endless views and one of the main characteristics of Barcelona, La Sagrada Familia.
The route passes through the La Molina ski station, where several international tests have been carried out.
La Sagrada Familia - is the most known and characteristic monument of Barcelona. The work of Antoni Gaudi represents a exceptional and outstanding creative contribution of architecture and construction technology of the end of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The facade of the Birth and the crypt of the Exploratory Temple of the Sagrada Familia were inscribed on the list of World Heritage of Unesco in 2005.
La Molina - is a ski resort located in the Sierra del Cadi, where several international tests have been carried out, for example: The Alpine Ski World Cup in 2008-2009, IX World Snowboard Championship 2011 and the Alpine Ski World Championship
for Disabled in 2013.
Port del Canto - is one of the long peninsular ports with high altitude, but very beautiful. It is well known for the trans-Pyrenean routes N260 and the Tour de France.
Sort - is a beautiful town in the Pyrenees that is known for being the capital of adventure sports. It is also known for the lottery administration ``The Golden Witch``.

The national road N-260, also called Eje Pirenaico is a charming road, very quiet, without much traffic and with a unique natural environment. It connects the towns of Portbou and Sabiñánigo. In addition, some areas were renovated, so circulating it is a pleasure. We hope you liked the routes along the N260. Have a nice trip.
