Warden’s Lodge

Route POI
Index card


Located at the most westerly point of the arête of the Coll de les Sorres (hill of the sands), is the Warden’s Lodge or Dune Lodge. This exists because there is a group of inland dunes between the Montplà and the Torre Moratxa which come from the Gulf of Roses. The dunes used to advance by 4 or 5 metres a year and during the work to stabilise them this forest lodge was built for the warden of the nursery for the plants that would fix the dune to inhabit. Grasses and shrubs were planted first to stabilise the ground, then forest species were introduced such as the Aleppo pine and the stone pine.
