Escornalbou Castle forests

Numerous Mediterranean representations of trees provide a great landscape richness

Below Escornalbou there is a large forest area with numerous examples of Mediterranean trees, among which should outline the small cork Escornalbou and the dominant element, the pine forest.

The first, the Querqus suber cork oak, is the most interesting. Because of the acid soil composition and possibly also because of the monks care to obtain cork, the population of these different from the oak trees, although discreet, is unique because of its rarity, as in the strip prelitoral only find in L'Albiol and Alforja.

The fauna and flora are that typical of the Mediterranean forests. The pine forest is composed of Pinus nigra, enduring the spectacular northwest wind in the area. Among the pines, other species such as oak-Quercetum Violo faginae or a multitude of landscape shrubs in great harmony.

Among the trees you can see the nearby mountains of L'Argentera, the mountains of Prades and the molar of Colldejou.
