All the old signs in Port-Vendres have been replaced by brand new ones. The missing panels as well as those supports in poor condition have been reinstalled by the technical services of the town of Port-Vendres. The design of the panels was carried out by the association which entrusted the printing to a private company

 

On the front of each panel, there is a QR code which is linked directly to the website and to the description and analysis of the watercolor

The inauguration of the Trail’s renovation was the opportunity to present it to the public through 2 hikes organized in collaboration with the Evasion Catalane de Port-Vendres association.

In each group there was thus an Evasion Catalane animator and a CRM guide who could explain the works.

It was very hot  – the participants endured a scorching temperature.

The hikes ended in the Dome Gardens in the shade of a weeping willow tree. The interpretation center was open and welcomed visitors in accordance with sanitary rules

 

Refreshments were offered to the participants, containing a snack made from typical Scottish recipes.
