Extraordinary construction work created during the Roman Empire
The Roman road, formerly Capsacosta, was the communication route between Besalú and France, through the Coll d’Ares. It was a first-rate road, one of the few examples in Catalonia, and well preserved, of Roman road construction technique. It has been declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest.
It is a mountain road that shows a good engineering project, designed with precise works to overcome the difficulties imposed by the topography, with steep slopes and areas and with a perfect integration and adaptation to the terrain in a complex and varied geographical space. The Roman road of Capsacosta is a true work of engineering of monumental importance and an exceptional testimony of a historical period of great significance for our country. Created in the time of the Roman Empire, the Roman road to Capsacosta is very easy to follow. In several sections it has an excellent state of conservation. This road was called Via Annia and was a branch of the Via Augusta.
