The route of the Good Men
The Cami dels Bons Homes is long distance trail that follows the migration routes used by the Cathars or 'good men' during the 12th and 14th centuries when they fled persecution by the crusaders and the Inquisition promoted by the Catholic Church with the aid of the King of France. The route (GR107), which can be travelled on foot, by horse or by mountain bike, is 189km long between Berga (Santuary of Queralt) and the castle of Montsegur in France.
