Camí de Ronda, the wall of knowledge.
A walk around the outside of the walls that surrounded the monastic enclosure and the town of Ripoll. With various modifications over the years, these walls remained standing until the end of the First Carlist War (1833–39). Ripoll was in ruins at that time, and modern Ripoll was later built on the same site. The route is based on the model in the Ethnographic Museum of Ripoll, which was made using references from the 17th century.
