Nearer to Moulins de Rei town the route passes via Can Revella farmhouse rural restarant. This is a former wine making farmhouse that has been converted into a spectacular rural restaurant.

After A hearty lunch in Can Revella the trail swings round the back of the farmhouse and parallels the town at the edge of the forest to get to the natural rock formation of fissures called las escalates.
