Coll de Nargó 65 million years ago. A warm region of the coast and small lagoons, where the dinosaurs make their nests with eggs, but this was coming to an end... the end of the Cretaceous and the beginning of the Cenozoic era, which led to the extinction of the dinosaurs and the transformation of the landscape in a mountainous area.
This is the time of the deposit of Coll de Nargó dinosaur eggs, and for this reason it is considered one of the most important in the world.
The first excavations of the year 1985, are documented more than 900 nests, 20 points with bones or Fragments and 3 traces of footsteps.
To protect this rich heritage, was created in the year 2005 the dinosaurs Museum, where educational and scientific activities are carried out. This educational work is an open site to the public where we can imagine the landscape that had Coll de Nargó by the observation of fossilized remains of vegetation, laid eggs and traces of footsteps, a place to imagine how was the world where dinosaurs dominated the Earth for 180 million years.
