Mare de Déu de la Roca
A small area in the municipalities of Vilanova d’Escornalbou and Montroig del Camp, at one end of the pre-littoral mountains. Its relief of red rock cliffs and soil is home to an interesting flora and it is an ideal habitat for a large number of species that thrive in such rocky terrain. The landscape is dominated by the coastal holm-oak, although today we also find silicic scrub with some ilex and cork oaks, together with dry pastures. Of particular interest here are numerous species of muscinae and lichens that are very rare in Catalonia.
