In front of us, we can observe an orange-red color rocky formation with a "Senyera" (Catalan Flag) and a cross. This is the Granòfir de Ribes.
Granophyte is a rock that would be halfway between a granite and a volcanic rock. This is due to the fact that in these rocks correspond to an old chimney of a volcano from the superior Ordovician period.
The vegetation that grows on the granophyte's ground likes strongly acidic the lands, and it is due to this fact that the heather is abundant.
Ribes de Freses granophyte is the largest and best known in Catalonia.
