Latitude & Longitude (decimal):


The Cap de Creus peninsula is the eastern end of the Pyrenees and is composed of a variety of rocks with a wide range of metamorphic degree increasing from low grade until anatexis with related granodiorite and pegmatite intrusions. These materials belong to the deepest zone of the Variscan orogeny structural level.

In the metasedimentary sequence one can distinguish four main areas whose degree of metamorphism increases towards NE:
1 - Epimetamorphic zone (greenschist facies)
2 - Mesometamorphic zone (biotite facies)
3 - Perianatectic zone (cordierite - andalusite to sillimanite facies)
4 - Migmatite complex
In the last two areas there are many pegmatite intrusions, and is where are found most of the mineral species listed in this location, many of them observed under petrographic microscope and hardly recognizable at naked eye.

Cap de Creus rocky landscapes and outcrops are famous for being a sample book of complex but clear and well exposed tectonic structures, specially ductile shear zones, but is not necessary to be a geologist to fall in love with his wild landscapes.


NOTE: As is a Natural Park, collecting is prohibited and the area is controlled.
