At the entrance of the village (if we come from Sant Martí Vell on the left) we find a small parking space where we start the walk. We go up the street of Sant Esteve that allows us to appreciate the authentic character of the town. At the top of the street there is a small square and through a corridor we reach the church square. Through these streets we see traditional turns, narrow streets, portals, windows or the same parish church of Sant Esteve, which with its bell tower are one of the most representative images of Madremanya. We continue along the same street until we find the avenue of the Gavarres that takes us to the exit of the village. Right here, we crossed the carretera de la Pera and we take a path that goes down through the fields and that had been an ancient Roman road.

We continue until we reach a wooded area where we go into a detour that goes down to the Neighborhood of Millars, which we soon see in the middle of the fields in a lower area. We cross the core of Millars observing its church and castle and take the paved road to the left and follow it until we find the detour also on the left and go up until we find the carretera de la Pera (GIV-6425). We continue to the right until we find a light-transforming station at a crossroads.

We take the middle, wider dirt road that crosses fields and we pass through a vineyard, which is on the right, until we find the remains of an old mill, about 800 meters. Here we turn left past a wooded area until we find another path that heads back towards the transformer station and from here we take the paved road to the Pedró neighborhood.

We cross in the middle of the houses of the neighborhood, where you can admire its architectural beauty and you will also find a Creu del terme, which links the municipality with the Via Augusta. We continue straight until we reach in the middle of the village of Madremanya.
