Museum of dinosaurs (Dinosfera) in Coll de Nargó (CataloniaSpainPyrenees): the last refuge of the dinosaurs

This museum is one of the three most important and promising sites of its kind in the world. The Pyrenees was the last area inhabited by dinosaurs, 65 million years ago. This explains why the Coll de Nargó museum is regarded by the scientific community as one of the most important in the world.

The museum includes footmarks, fossilised vegetal and animal remains, and dinosaur eggs and nests. The importance of the site has motivated the creation of the Mirador del Cretaci (Cretaceous Observation Centre), which offers a trip along gangways from which it is possible to see the remains of mangrove swamps, palm trees and large footmarks, as well as a great variety of dinosaur eggs.

It takes about 40 minutes by car to get to Coll de Nargó from Andorra (N 145, N 260, C 14)

Ticket cost:

adult – 4.5 euro
