The Walk From Flaça Train Station to Púbol

The square in front of Flaça train station
Plaça de l’Estacio del Carrillet, Flaça

Flaça train station is approximately 6km from Púbol, the walk through rolling farmland takes just over an hour.

From Flaça to La Pera the route follows a gravel cycle path.

From La Pera to Pubol, You walk on the GV-6426 which is a quite country road with little traffic.

If you will be walking in the summer months you should carry water an wear a hat since there is little shade.

If it has rained recently you may need to cross a small brook which forms just after the start of the track.

There is a stepping stone so you shouldn’t get your feet wet. You don’t need walking boots, trainers or other casual footwear are sufficient.

If you only want to walk one way, I recommend that you take a taxi to Puból and then walk back. Puból is slightly higher than Flaça so the return journey is slightly downhill.

How to walk from Flaça train station to Dali & Gala’s castle in Púbol

Leaving Flaça, where the C-255z joins the C-66 at the start of the walk to Pubol castle
Leaving Flaça, where the C-255z joins the C-66

As you leave the train station, walk straight ahead along the rectangular plaza Plaça de l’Estacio del Carrilet (see photo above).

At the end of the plaza turn left and follow the road out of town (C-225z).

As it leaves the town the C-225z joins the C-66, signposted La Bisbal.

At the junction, on the other side of the road, you will see an abandoned stone farmhouse and a small red sign indicating the cycle track.

Take care as you cross the road here, it’s a secondary highway there’s not much traffic but it does travel quite fast.

After crossing the road, in front of the farmhouse, walk down the slope and follow the dirt track to the left.

The track follows along beside the road for about 200 m and crosses a small brook.

If its been raining and you want to avoid the brook, you could also walk along the C-66 for this first section.

The photos in this post were taken in springtime and it ha rained heavily the night before.

100m after the brook, the track is replaced by a gravel road/cycle path which continues past what looks like an old abandoned water mill on the right.

Follow the cycle path for the next 3km through the countryside to La Pera.

Shortly after the start of the walk, where the dirt track is replaced by a gravel cycle path. If you decided to avoid the brook you could join the path here.

Just before arriving at La Pera, the cycle track joins a country road which skirts around the right hand side of the village.

From here we follow the CV-6426 for 20 minutes to Puból. This is a quiet country road with very little traffic.

Take care because there is no pavement or footpath for most of this section so you should keep an eye out for cars.
