Stage 8. Ribes de Freser- Tossa de Mar. 89 miles/ 6129 ft
We are getting to the Mediterranean Sea, but still we have many places yet to discover. Coll de Jou pass is very unique, small and very little travelled road and in the descent we come upon San Martí de Ogassa church, that has been in use since 1021. Another pass, Coll de Sentigosa, is the last climb before coming into the great town of Girona. We will stop in town where many professional cyclists and triathletes live and we will admire the gothic cathedral and old jewish quarter. Lance Armstrong lived in town when he was at the peak of his career. Anothe 25 miles will put us in Tossa de Mar where we can finally jump in the water next to its ancient castle.
