We will continue, for the obaga; We will take a path surrounded by a crowd of spectacular holly trees that will take us to almost Paloma’s neck.
Here we can decide if we return to Figuerola along the track or we ascend, along the path that resides the cliff, in the highest mountain of the Sierra de Miramar: Tossal Gordo of 867 m, or Tozal de Sant Jordi, known more flatly by the Morrot – of the Holy One. It is not necessary to say that the climb to the summit is absolutely recommended, both for the beauty of the landscapes that are seen from above, and for the great natural value of the place.
