The Expensive (Mont Caro), is a peak 1.447 meters, located in the Els Ports Natural Park (in Roquetes municipi), is the highest point in the province of Tarragona. It belongs to the Catalan pre-coastal mountain range located in the south end.

So is the highest peak height that I pass over that house and make some climb to enjoy the magnificent views of the Ebro Valley, Ports and wildlife.

Here are some of ascent routes all very desirable:

From the ravine to Caramella Caro:

Tour: 14,71km +/- 1300m elevation with steep.

From the ravine Machado to Caro:

Tour: 15,50km +/- 1130m elevation with moderate slopes.

From the ravine to Lloret Caro:

Tour: 14,50km +/- 1300m elevation with steep slopes.

Other routes of ascent may be interesting from the ravine Covalta, the channel Barcino, by Vallfiguera, Tip of the Farrubio, from Caro shelter of barns and neck,etc. Some of them share a stage with previous.
