Sant Pau de Segúries

Sant Pau de Segúries, the gateway to the Camprodon Valley and its verdant rolling countryside irrigated by the River Ter, is surrounded by mountains such as Miralles, Puig Perrús, Puigsacreu and Capsacosta. Its Roman road, which in places still retains its original paving, and the old town with its narrow streets and houses with stone lintels together with a modern sector founded in the Industrial Age, make Sant Pau de Segúries truly worth a visit.
