The Plan of the Pletes. Rural architecture

Today we publish a short route, which you can do on foot from the Torre del Codina with a duration of two hours.

In the course of it we can see in a few kilometers, the change of landscape from Urgell to La Segarra, and the depths of Barrers and Casablanca, as well as the valley of Vilagrasseta.

We can see a set of pletes, which are a clear example of the rural and popular architecture of these areas. The crowd of Pla, Cervera and Diego. On the way to Granyena, we will see the plains of Carbonell, Llobera and Castell.

We will also pass by a peculiar forest of cadets: the cadequer. It is interesting to note that the name of the town of Cadaqués on the Costa Brava comes from this shrub that grows in stony and arid areas, in certain parts of our country. In Mahón, the English used the fruit of the cadec to make their gin, as it is a fruit similar to juniper.

With a little luck, we will be able to see the bald eagle, which has its main nesting and dispersal area in this environment.

Back and near the Torre del Codina, we can see two dry stone huts along the way.

Care must be taken not to enter the properties or the buildings of the huts and huts, as in addition to being private property, in many cases, the structures and walls are quite damaged, and we would cause unnecessary danger situations.

It is best to look at them from the different perspectives that the landscape gives us.
