Vall de Llémena is one of the best conserved natural areas in the Girona region and is just outside the city of Girona.
Sitting right between the two regions of el Gironès and la Garrotxa, and covering 184 km2 it is flanked on the west by les Medes, Sant Roc-Santa Elena and Sant Grau mountains and on the east by the Finestres, Portelles, and Rocacorba mountains, the Cadalt hills and the mounds of Bruguerol, Montcal and Sant Medir.
The valley got its name from the Llémena stream, of symbolic importance as it unites the territory, running along the entire length of the valley, from the head down to where it flows into the Ter River via Sant Gregori. The towns of Canet d’Adri, Sant Aniol de Finestres, Sant Gregori and Sant Martí de Llémena are built on the banks of the stream, and a little further back you encounter small villages, ancient hamlets, and unusual farmhouses in beautiful surroundings.
The combination of cultivated fields, different types of forest, cliffs and an abundance of water, have made this a harmonious countryside sculpted by nature and the traditional methods of employing its natural resources. Its geographic location, as well as the beauty of its surroundings, provides the ideal conditions for providing the public with a wide variety of leisure, cultural and sports activities as well as gastronomic opportunities.
