Llistonar meadows

Route POI
Index card


​​​​​Brachypodium retusum

The dry meadows on both sides of the trail are called llistonar in Catalan. From an environmental perspective, llistonars are very important, as they fix soil very well in places with a high risk of erosion. The dominant vegetation which colonises these soils is the llistó (photo). This land receives a great deal of sun and corresponds to abandoned farmland and deforested locations which have been converted into pasture.

Although the most abundant vegetation is the llistó, small communities of grasses, small bushes such as thyme and annual plants (therophytes) also grow here.
