The forgotten dam

Pedalling among orchard fields we will go along Valle de la Rectoría, made up by the towns of Benidoleig, Ràfol d'Almunia, Sanet i Negrals and Tormos. From the latter, following the Girona river bed, among pine tree forests and rocky formations, we will access one of the most attractive spots in this region: Isbert dam, built on a narrow and spectacular gorge with vertical walls reaching almost 100 meters in height. Its builders, however, omitted one small detail: the water seeping into the soil makes it impossible to dam up, a reason why the dam of Isbert has appeared on maps only since then.
