The plan is making some of the different hikings propossed by the Tourist Office and follow Water Benjamin route too, relax, enjoy slow time, slow food, slow conversations, discover the magic of this forgotten but so important place : as, beginning of the Pirinees and last spanish village and conection train with France.
