La Creu de l'Estany

Index card


At 86 metres in height, this is one of the small hills of the Baix Ter, although the spot also supports one of the towers of a high-tension electricity line.

From this peak, even though it is not very tall, you can see a great panoramic view of the Baix Ter, from the outlines of the Begur Mountains all the way to the ones closest to the Montgrí Massif and the prominence of Roca Maura, alongside l’Estartit, with the Medes islands emerging from the sea.

In the middle, you can see the Gola del Ter, the coastal dunes and the irrigation channels and rice fields of the Baix Ter. It is a small concentrated compendium of the area’s geography.

In addition to the panoramas, you can also see some Iberian remains, on an old elevated place used for monitoring the land during the Roman conquest between the second half of the third century bc and the first century bc, approximately.
