Geological route through the terme de Gaià, it places the northern sectors of the Geopark of Central Catalonia and also the region of the Bages. Along the route of the itinerary, we will recognize the materials that rebuilt the sea that was then found in this place, at the end of the Eocene and principles of the Oligocene. At that time, the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean System were being eroded. Thus, the material results of erosion blur this sea. For the surroundings of Gaià, these materials came from the Pyrenees.

GEOPOLIC GEOLOGICAL OUTDOORS WITH JOSEP M. MATA
Millions of years ago, in the geographical heart of Catalonia, there was a sea that disappeared pushed by the rise of mountain ranges like the Pyrenees. The geological processes have left a territory with spectacular rock formations such as Montserrat and rich natural resources such as salt, plaster or lime.
