Footprints at Orcau
This important site takes us to a lake landscape in the Cretaceous, today transformed into a sloping rock wall. This wall has conserved dozens of round shaped footprints, due to a group of big herbivorous dinosaurs: the Titanosaurs. These had exceptionally long necks and tails, and their heads were surprisingly small in relation to the rest of their bodies.
Duck-billed dinosaurs at Llau de la Costa
This site is located close to the
La Posa. A Cretaceous beach
At the ichnites site of La Posa it is possible to see more than 2,000 remains attributed to the feeding activity of the herds at the end of the Cretaceous. The landscape at that point had nothing to do with the current one, as La Posa was located by then at the coastline. You will be surprised to find in the rocks remains on a marine environment, the effects of tides and the habitat for small invertebrates.
