  • Barraca de Forcadell: The first one that we find during the route is located in the departure of Tosses. It has a false dome cover and although it presents a state of degradation imported by the plundering of the stone, its recovery is possible.
  • Barraques de Favaret: At this point are located a set of four dry stone barracks.
  • Barraca de l’Ametller: This hut was restored by the Amposta City Council in 2007. This particular one, has extensive dimensions and is considered the largest within the typology of a single ship in the province of Tarragona. It is part of the historical, artistic and architectural heritage of Amposta.
