It will be the sixth session, and will take place around the hill of Les Forques -popularly known as the Telegraph- and the urbanization of Costablanca, in the municipality of Castellbisbal. It will be a morning to delve into geological aspects of the environment, as well as historical, floristic and faunal aspects.

Departure is free and no prior registration is required. The Martorell Vila train station will start at 09.00, and is expected to end at 14.00. It will have the interventions of the geologists Josep Maria Tella and Pedro Muñoz; the historian Alfred Mauri and the environmental educator Alfred Bellés.

At the starting point the station will welcome attendees and a short explanation of the route. “It simply came to our notice then the journeywhich will border the river Llobregat at the top, and will pass through the urbanization of Costa Blanca ”.

In the initial section of the start, participants will get to know a large block of Paleozoic rocks -very old- around the hill of Les Forques or Telegraph Tower. A landscape that contrasts with that of river and lake deposits that will be seen next in the urbanization of Costablanca.

At this point we will talk about the geological risks that may occur due to the construction model in the area, which have led to “landslides, landslides, block falls, invasion of potentially floodable areas, variation of natural drainage and pathologies in the streets ”.
