At this point you can see the dry stone walls, which are ancient constructions of steps with walls made without any material to bind them, just an assembly of stone upon stone playing with their volume and weight. Thanks to these steps, which were used to level the land, the crops could be spread to the hillsides, as they accumulated the fertile soil, prevented water dragging and made the farming work easier.
Another interesting point of this viewpoint is the Mosaic Scenery of Andorra, where the rural panorama of the 20th century has evolved, leaving behind the cultivated lands and pastures to become a more urban scene of services.
You will find more information about this and other guided walking routes in the Andorra Mountain Guide.
