The section of the Camino de Ronda that we will do begins at the Lighthouse of Roses , which is located just below the Castillo de la Trinidad, also known as 'the Button of Roses', built in the 16th century with the idea of protecting the coast of possible enemies, just as the coastal path was intended to watch out for possible smugglers who arrived by sea.
On the way to Canyelles Petites beach we can enjoy some rocky outcrops of white marble with veins and of great geological interest. They are unique rock formations that are combined with tiny coves and charming corners where you can stop to take pictures.
The islets that we see when arriving at the beach of Canyelles Petites are known as the Ramales, which are a resting point for birds such as the cormorant.
