Hoja  Ermita d'Enclar...


A good excuse to do sightseeing in Andorra visit the Ermita d'Enclar accessible through a well-equipped and demanding built in 2000 ferrata.

The Ermita d'Enclar has been recently restored, especially in stepping in the building shell. It is a construction of X century whose most notable feature is the bell tower of a single cylindrical body. On the typology resembles other nearby like Santa Coloma of Andorra and Sant Martí d'Ars , and in Catalonia.

To get there, drive towards Santa Coloma . Once there, follow the signs to the cemetery or the via ferrata up to the Carrer dels Barrers. At the end of this street you will meet the starting point of the route. There is a small car park.

Once the satellite,do not let a few meters to visit the Ermita de Santa Coloma of Andorra that is probably the best known of the Andorran Romanesque heritage die.

The church of Santa Coloma is difficult to date. Presents from the construction point of view, many similarities to the Hermitage of Sant Vicenç d'Enclar and typology also coincides with that of other rural churches built between the eighth and tenth centuries in the counties of the Marca Hispanica. With these limited data, we can only say that we have a Romanesque temple whose construction started at some unspecified time between the eighth and tenth centuries from the time the ship left and east wall of the apse. Then in the second half of the twelfth century, would suffer a great reform which the North and South of the apse walls remain, the Lombard-style belfry and the South wall enclosing the porch. Almost all of the mural decoration of the apse was adquiridto a private collector.

From the car park follow the yellow marks, it starts with a large information panel. After about 15 minutes of trail we will be in the ferrata.

The route starts in the woods, on a sloping wall that leads to three or four easy steps. To the left we can see much of the ferrata path that is surpassing vertical ribs.

The first of these steps goes fast on a smooth rock crowned by a small oak that will help us grow and where the cable is secured life.

Depues these sections we will first clearing on the left, step foot well equipped to take advantage of the rock and where to move.

And arrive at the most complex step. It is a collapsed across a ledge and a vertical section of 5 meters. It is equipped to use their feet as the main backup, avoiding overexertion arms.

We continued upuntil a plate inclined rails and chains easily overcome until we descend slightly to face the last stretch of road. From down the passage impress, but it's easier than it looks. It is vertical, long and quite subsided; is good to do a flip.

A postage where the left will take advantage of cracks in the rock to move, leading us down the path and Ermita de San Vincente .

The road back starts behind the chapel of Sant Vicenç d'Enclar , down the shady side of the mountain to a small hill. There began the descent down the quarry.
