The Parc del Garraf
The Parc Natural del Garraf (the protected area of the Garraf massif) is located between the regions of Baix Llobregat, Alt Penedčs and El Garraf, forming the southwestern part of the so-called Serrelada Litoral Catalana (the Catalan coastal mountain range). It stretches from the lower Llobregat valley to the Mediterranean Sea and the Penedčs depression.
It covers an area of 12,820 hectares and consists of two distinct geographical units: one is made up of limestone rocks, dolomites and a small vein of red slate, at the eastern end of the park.
The landscape is rocky and harsh, with numerous underground caves formed by the effect of water on limestone. It is criss-crossed by dry watercourses tucked into the rocks, known as fondos. The highest peaks are La Morella (594.6 m) and El Rascler (572 m).
The Barcelona regional government´s Servei de Parcs Naturals, manages this protected area in conjunction with the municipalities in the area and other affected sectors.
