Serra de Finestres
The landscape of the Finestres mountains is predominantly wooded, with a strong presence of mountainous areas and a rich archaeological heritage around the Iberian settlement of Palomera and the site at Roc de la Melca.
The canopy of the woodland is of great interest due to its diversity: the mountain holm-oak, a transition towards deciduous woodland, is present in abundance, and is found on the slopes of the Finestres that face the sun. There are also humid oak woodlands, and mixed woodland with oak, ash, maple and lime in shaded areas, and on drier substrates there are beech and box trees.
The highest peak of the range is Puigsallança (1,041m), a viewpoint that rises from amongst the mountains and so gives an excellent panorama of the whole valley. The Santa Maria de Finestres castle (880 m), located on a small hill surrounded by precipices, also offers a complete view of the Vall de Llémena, and the Olot and Mieres valleys.
