Inaugurated at the beginning of Easter, the anchored walkway built by iMuntanya in Palamós is a work of special significance that extends the coastal path and links the urban area with the Playa del Castell. This project has been carried out jointly with Estudi Martí Franch of landscape architecture and Ton Ardèvol – winners of several awards such as the Rosa Barba European landscape architecture prize – and the construction company Massachs. The Project Manager, Jessica Espasa, talks about the work and the result.

“The Palamós walkway is one of the infrastructure works that gives continuity to the coastal path. It links the area of Les Pites with that of Cala dels Pots, in the enclave of the Morro del Vedell viewpoint. This completes the remaining connection to give linear continuity to the entire route of the coastal path, which is 3.5 kilometres long.”

The anchored walkway is part of the coastal path

The Palamós anchored walkway extends the coastal path and connects the urban area with the Platja del Castell.

“More than a simple walk, with this walkway we find the experience of walking through the landscapes it shows us and takes us into the maritime world. Through its wooden pavement and semi-transparent anti-fall protection mesh, the infrastructure invades the landscape as little as possible and fits into the slope like a glove.”

The views of the port and the Cala del Morro de Vedell from the walkway are unique.

“During the experience you will walk along a walkway anchored to the ground, showing you the harbour life until you reach the bridge where the walkway continues along the landscape, with rest stops and strategic panoramic points to admire the view.”

Construction of the structure of the walkway

“To be able to adapt the walkway along its course, the first section was built anchored to the rock using a system of steel anchors, bolting it to the slope. Halfway along the two aerial sections, there is a bridge that gives continuity to the walkway with a steel structure, micropiles and reinforced concrete foundations. At the end of its axis we walk over a widening of the pavement forming a viewpoint anchored to the rock by bolting to the slope, to take a rest and see the spectacle of the port and the Cala del Morro del Vedell.”
