Muntanyes de Tivissa- Vandellòs
A natural area divided into two orographical units, the Tivissa Mountains farther inland to the west and the Vandellòs Mountains to the east and nearer the coast. Although these two units are geographically isolated, they form part of the same system and have many features in common. Their typical southern pre-littoral mountain relief is formed by valleys, in which coastal holm-oak woods with laurestine predominate, and hard to reach rock walls that have allowed the survival of populations of species including the badger, the fox, the genet and the weasel. This
is also an important wintering area for many birds and birds of prey, such as the kestrel, the golden eagle and Bonelli’s eagle, the population of the latter being one of the largest in Catalonia.
