6. Saldes: Mirador of Gresolet, Astronomical Center and Meeting of Accordionists of Maçaners

Its name comes from the fact that from this cliff the valley of Gresolet is completely dominated.

It should be noted that from this point begins the access to the Lluís Estasen refuge, starting point for the ascent of Pedraforca by the northern route and nerve center of access to the many existing climbing routes in this massif .
