Puig of Costabona

The Beak of the Costabona finds situated in the line of crests that comes of the Pic of Rock Colom through the collado of Stick (2.374 m) and separates the valleys of the Tec (Vallespir) and of the Ter (Ripollès).

The summit of type granítico is the last of the big summits of this carena, to raise no longer there are heights that exceed the 1.700 m. In the meridional slope form the torrent of Valley-Llobre (in the source of Fray Joan) and the Ritort (in the manantiales of in Sitjar), tributaries of the Ter by the left; the northern slope limits the comma of the Tec and, to the east, dominates the high Vallespir (the bathrooms of Loans it and the villa of Meadows of Molló). To some 2.300 m, in the oriental slope, inside the term of Meadows of Molló (Vallespir), find the mines of Costabona, of Scheelite (Tungstat of calcium), for the exploitation of which has been built a forest track in finds in very bad state. In the cabecera of the torrent of Vall-Llobre, inside the term of Setcases (Ripollès), find the shelter of Costabona.

In the summit of the Costabona there is a geodesic milestone and several crosses, as well as a metallic box. The circular sight is very wide, standing out eastwards the Gulf of Roses and the Plain of the Rosselló, separated by the Saw of the Albera. To the north the imponente Macizo of the Canigó, the cracks of Rojà and the Comma of the Tec, with Rock Colom and the Roc of the Death of the Escolà. West we find the beaks of the Circus of Ulldeter standing out the Gra of Fajol and the one of Bastiments to his side.
