SCHEDULE OF 10 AM TO 5 PM
Visitors to Ordino Arcalís can also go up to the Port de Creussans pass, at an altitude of 2,625 metres to enjoy some of the most spectacular views in the north of the country. Ascending to this pass, which forms the natural border between Andorra and France, gives visitors the chance to appreciate the majesty and beauty of the Andorran, French and Spanish Pyrenees. Access to this superb beauty spot is by the Creussanschairlift in La Coma d’Arcalís, or on foot in a walk that takes twety minutes and takes us past Creussans. Once at the port, an orientation map provides information about the breathtaking Pyrenean views from this point.
The Port de Creussans also hides an interesting history focus on the Catalan poet Jacint Verdaguer. On 25 August 1883, Verdaguer entered Andorra through the Port de Creussans after several days spent visiting the Catalan Pyrenees. This was a time when the poet was carrying out a study of the Pyrenean landscapes, folklore and legends that inspired some of his best-known verse.
The route, called Ruta Verdaguer, which takes around five hours to complete, begins at the top of the Creussans chairlift and ends in the village of Llorts. Along the way, we can admire some of the most outstanding attractions in the parish of Ordino, including the mysterious Coma del Forat, the site known as Les Marrades del Bruig, the Romanesque Church of Sant Pere del Serrat, the Farga bridge and the Llorts mine.
