Roman road of Capsacosta

The Roman road of Capsacosta is a work of engineering importance and an exceptional testament to a historical period of great change for the country.

Created in the time of the Roman Empire, the Roman road of Capsacosta is very easy to follow by foot. In several stretches the road is extremely well preserved. The road was known as the Via Annia and was a branch of the Via Augusta. From the town of Figueres the route rans towards the mountains and after crossing the Bianya plain, it climbed towards Capsacosta and continues on towards the Ares pass. Here, on the frontier with Gaul, the road went on to connect with the Via Principal.
The walls, wheel-guards and all the other elements of the Roman road of Capsacosta are a testament to the extraordinary construction project that was carried out two thousand years ago.

One of Itinerànnia’s paths follows the Roman road of Capsacosta, from Traginers (Vall de Bianya) to Sant Pau de Segúries (Ripollès).
