Boi Taüll (2,049)


col de la cayolle cycling


Boí Taüll, situated in the Spanish Pyrenees, presents a compelling climb that appeals particularly to riders looking to tackle a moderate climb. While it may not have the brutal steepness of Europe’s most notorious climbs, its 13-kilometer length and average gradient of 6.2% offer a balanced challenge that can engage both seasoned riders and those looking to push their capabilities in a high-altitude environment.

The climb to Boí Taüll starts from the town of Boí, winding its way through the landscape of the Vall de Boí. This area is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, including a collection of early Romanesque churches that are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Despite those facts, the climb never really makes a great impression.
