With an approach time that can be measured in seconds rather than minutes, Can Melafots is the most convenient of all the sectors in Siurana. While not outstanding (compared to some of the zone’s more major sectors) there are plenty of worthwhile routes here to keep 6th and 7th grade climbers happy. Orientation: southeast — sun until mid-afternoon.
The starting point for Can Melafots is the major parking area known as ‘La Bassa’ (P5) which is situated on the left, just before entering the village of Siurana. From here, walk along a well-marked footpath (signposted Els Gorgs) which runs eastwards. The sector begins immediately (1 minute).
From the nearby town of Cornudella on the C-242 road, drive north for 500m then turn right onto T-3225, which leads past all the cliffs in the zone and eventually reaches the village of Siurana.
