Tabular relief in the valley of Rajadell

Tabular relief in the valley of Rajadell. The tabular morphology of slopes that culminate in almost flat surfaces like a table comes from the erosion in non-folded areas. The tabular morphology is originated by the alternation of soft rock layers in the slopes (with mudstones predominance) and hard layers in the summits (with conglomerates, sandstones, and limestones eventually). The best tabular morphologies cases are located in the south-west area of Bages (Cogulló de Cal Torre, Pòpia de Montgròs, Collbaix,…)
