The walk through the village lets you discover S. Cristina's different sights and landmarks. One of them is the Romanesque-Gothic styled church of S. Cristina, which was first mentioned in 1342. Moreover you can walk passed life-size bonze figures, the world's biggest hand-carved crib, a children's playground and two waterfalls. The Raida dl luech is the ideal path to get to know the town of S. Cristina.

Due to a landslide, the walk leads across a newly built bridge near the lower waterfall.

Turn-by-turn directions

The path starts from S. Cristina parish church and takes you to a children's playground by following the former railway tracks. Cross the Dosses Square and follow the stream's course to the Iman Sport Centre to another children's playground.

Keep to the path near the Cisles stream and you'll soon see a small, wooden bridge and a chairlift, followed by an easy, uphill strech to Monte Pana waterfall. Move on to the forest path to Plan da la Sia clearing and Soplajes shortly after. Cross the main road and stick to the Triech uphill path which takes you by the hidden Soplajes waterfall on your way back.
