It is the only area of wild thyme that has been preserved until today in Catalonia.

Steppe vegetation in nature provides a rich and unique biodiversity in these areas. The best example of this biodiversity is the Dupont’s lark (Chersophilus duponti), which is located only at this site in Catalonia. The species became extinct in 2005 in Catalonia, but in 2016 was again detected in the area. Trenca association signed a land stewardship agreement in 2014 with the Ministry of Territory and Sustainability, to collaborate in conservation and improvement of this unique natural area.
