GEOLOGY, WHERE THE STONES SPEAK

In the late Cretaceous period (between the Jurassic and Palaeogene periods, some 65 million years ago) Pallars was a marine landscape. The collision of the European and Iberian tectonic plates produced the elevation of the Pyrenees, an incredible fold which led to dramatic changes. Throughout Pallars there are 26 points of special geological interest where visitors can see the transformation process the Earth underwent.
