Field study sites ideal for geology
teaching and assessment are located very close to our accommodation base in
Sitges and some of the most spectacular geological formations in Europe are
found within a relatively short drive. These include the salt
mountain at Cardona and the three thousand dinosaur fossil footprints at Fumanya.

The Fumanya tracksites are among the most important Cretaceous
dinosaur track localities in the world. These sites have remained largely
unstudied until 15 years after their discovery. They provide an exceptional
record of titanosaur ichnology with nearly 3,000 footprints arranged in more
than 50 trackways. The study of the Fumanya sites is providing further
refinements on titanosaur track morphology, stance, gauge and locomotion.
