5. Orbitoids and ostreids on the Faja Roja




    This is a scattered site with numerous examples but one large and very spectacular layer is of particular interest. Geological unit C-M.


    There are many spots with these fossils in the area covered by the report, but we mention this one due to its location on the route up Monte Perdido, which has a number of sites.


    The site is at GPS coordinates 31T 256210 4729302, which is reached almost at the very end of the Faja Roja. It covers a large surface stratum next to a stream, which is a popular resting spot for climbers on their way up to the summit of Monte Perdido.
