R.8. Around Olsón

Ruta 8. Ligüerre Inn-La Mata-Javierre de Olsón-Olsón-Susía River-Liguerre Inn

This route mostly passes by the fluvial and alluvial rocks from the Middle-Upper Eocene epoch that were formed approximately 37 million years ago. It also crosses those rocks formed at the bottom of the sea approximately 40 million years ago; and other rocks from the Quaternary, some tens of thousands of years old.

Information panels along the route tell us about the general aspects and the particular features of the landscape, such as its fossil grounds and its sedimentary environments from the Eocene. The fourth information panel stands on the route V.8.1 and it describes a type of rock known as conglomerate.
