Ice pit of Canyamars (Maresme), 20-01-2018

The group of ICHN-Bages visiting the ice pit of Canyamars (Maresme) in 20.01.2018. The ice pit of Canyamars is likely the biggest one in Catalonia and it is well maintained. Nowadays, one ice pit at 220 meter altitude in the coastal district of Maresme where the minimum temperatures seldom go below zero astonishes. The ice pits in the district of Maresme proof the increase of temperatures that has intensified in the recent two decades.
