The Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park is a Pre-Pyrenean mountain range. As a prized asset of ornithological interest, it is distinguished by a strong presence of native Pyrenean species that cannot be found throughout most of Europe.
Compared with other Pyrenean areas, the park's main advantage is that there are two roads that cross its subalpine terrains (the road from Bagà to Coll de Pal and the road from Coll de la Creueta). If you follow said roads you'll you will reach areas with black pine, Scots pine, alpine passes and rocky terrain. From there you will be able to see, from your car, symbolic species such as bearded vultures, alpine chough, alpine accentor and white-winged snowfinch.
Its landscape is one of the most spectacular in Catalonia. The Cadí-Moixeró mountain barrier and its stunning ridges spread from east to west over a distance greater than 18 miles, with altitudes from just under 3,000 feet in the valleys confined to the south, and reaching 8,687 feet at Puig de la Canal Baridana. With its peculiar two-peak pitchfork silhouette - which it is named after - Pedraforca ('Pitchfork of Stone') is the range's most symbolic mountain. Its ornithological significance stems from the fine representation of high mountain Pyrenean species on offer, some of which can be seen with relative ease and minimal effort due to the road-based vantage points that can be used. It's one of the best places in Catalonia to catch sight of white-winged snowfinch - flocks of up to 500 individuals can form in winter -, citril finch, bearded vulture and common rock thrush, amongst other species of interest to foreign ornithologists.
