Puig de Carroig

Route POI
Index card


From the top of Puig of Carroig, you can enjoy spectacular views of the interior of the Montgrí Massif and the Empordà. To the east you can see Roca Maura, l’Estartit and the Medes Islands in the background. To the north are the inland dunes and l’Escala. You can see all of the gulf of Roses as far as Cap de Creus and the Empordà plain. In the background, you can see the Serra de l’Albera and even Canigó and other peaks in the Pyrenees. It is also worth noting that the reddish soil on the top of the peak gives the mountain its name – Red Peak – as it differs from the pale whitish colours of the carbonate rocks in the rest of the mountain range.
