The Dry Stone Route
In Llançà we can find different elements built in dry stone, a traditional architecture technique of the XVII and XIX centuries.
The dry stone is a type of construction of simple technique that consists in overlapping stones horizontally. We can find margins, walls or huts in vineyard or olive grove that can be of square or circular plan.
