Circular routes for MTB

From Fígols to Fumanya

For a long period (from the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries) in Berguedà there were two important economic sectors: textile, thanks to the large number of industrial colonies in the Llobregat-i river. on the other hand, mining. Various mines - mainly coal - were being developed and developed in numerous areas, even creating residential colonies (such as Sant Corneli). Working on one of these extractions appeared huge dinosaur footprints formed 65 million years ago, on a land now converted to rock. This route shows several elements linked to both the mining and the dinosaur deposit.
