Cap De Creus–Rocks and More


Some 80 km from us is Cap de Creus – a rocky outcrop and natural park with wonderful views and nice hiking paths. Thus we decided to just quickly drive there on a Wednesday late afternoon and use the long hours of summer to get around a bit.

During its flow the lava which formed the land created all kinds of spectacular layers

The land is rather bleak, stony and not so fertile – being high summer and quite warm the cloud cover together with the stones made you feel like in an oven…

Shrubs in passing sunlight

This cactus must have had some kind of disease

Finally, after the short hike we called it a day and finalized it in Cadaques
