The plan "Els Patacons" is one of the most beautiful and famous via ferrata in the province of Tarragona. Its length of almost 500 m, its 4 Nepalese bridges (up to 30 meters), the spectacular climb to one of its vertical needle rock with a 20m rappel and the awesome views from there, make this via ferrata an unforgettable adventure.
