>>> This is planned to be part of a "Barcelona to Tarragona" route. All my tracks in this route will have names ending in "... BCN40A". I hope to continue this further south along the coast - with names "... BCN40B", "... BCN40C", "... BCN40D" - until I reach latitude 40ºN at Castelló de la Plana. In 2009/2010 I walked from latitude 30ºN to 40ºN combining three walks in India and Japon<<<
08:50 Start at Libreria Quera in Carrer Petritxol (near Ramblas and Liceu metro station). This library, specialised in hiking maps and similar, opened about 100 years ago. Today there were works going inside. I hope the bookshop will stay.

Lunch break, "menu migdia" in a nice restaurant that is looking for new owners (14:25-15:00). - GR 92 (few signs) straight to Llobregat River (Santiago pilgrimage route and GR 270 "Camí del Llobregat" which follows the river nearly 200km from its sources at the Pyrenees to the see) - GR 92, cross under big bridge, then over it (I didn't cross under it and was later required going up and down a pedestrian bridge on the other side of the river) - GR 92 into village - straight to playground (climbing elephant 15:45) - right until 100m before Can Roses railway stop (15:50) - left, then as straight as possible - near railway, GR 92 marks appear again - GR 92 Sant Vicenç dels Horts railway station (16:15). FGC trains to Barcelona (from platform 2) end at Plaça Espanya (from where green metro line L3 could bring you back to Liceu metro station near the starting point). I live in Barcelona and didn't look for accommodation at the end of the route.
