Until 1996, when a severe storm made it fall, Pedralta rock was known as the bigger swinging rock in Europe. Symbol of Sant Feliu de Guíxols village, in 1890 was placed a cross on it and in 1961 was built the chapel next, dedicated to the Virgin of the Assumption. Thanks to a popular collecting, some large cranes restored it two years after the fall, and nowadays it still remains as the scene of Aplec de Pedralta (celebrated every second Monday of Easter, by May), a popular festival that brings together the villagers in a popular food with folk dancing near this megalith.

    Pedra Ramera is a monolith that was discovered in 1990 after an exhaustive search, following some medieval documents indicating that this important menhir became the border between the municipalities of Solius and Bell-Lloc. You can reach it walking the Via Verde (Green Way, ancient old railways path) from the old train station Bell-Lloc, heading north toward Riera Salenys creek. About 200 meters before arriving the wooden bridge that crosses the stream, there is a fork to the left and, after about 150 meters, you will arrive to the monolith, near two high tension towers.
