Geo-ruta the Piracés steppe
Accustomed to the greenness of the Pyrenees, in this walk we will enter in a completely different environment but with a special charm. Using our imagination, the surroundings of Piracés with its Serreta de Tramaced takes us to the old western movies. It is a hard but spectacular scenery in an almost desert landscape of scarps of ochre sandstones. Although it may seem strange, this ecosystem is extremely rich in living beings, both animal and plant species (invertebrate and vertebrate). Birds like eurasian eagle owl, golden eagle, griffon vulture and summer birds like hobby, bee-eater, great spotted cuckoo and hoopoe find in this place their refuge and breeding area.Come with us and you will find out the huge trace of history among these rock walls, stories of large ancient rivers that left their sediments in this area, as well as traces of Roman and Moorish times and the importance that Piracés had in the past.The duration is an estimate and only half of it would be physically active; the rest would be used for explanations at the different stops along the route.
