The route enters the evergreen oak and black pine tree forest after which we find ourselves on the left of the Els Estrets river which takes us to the Racó de Corretja. It is made up of two rural houses, Corretja and Nasi, and in the 17th century was previously known as the Mas de la Catalana. It was inhabited until the mid-20th century, when the property was expropriated. Livestock farming and agriculture were the main forms of livelihood. The livestock barns can still be made out in the lower part of the house, the threshing ground in the front, as well as the pond for watering the allotment, slightly separated from the house, and a lime kiln in the entrance. The place was an important passing point for transhumant herds between the El Bajo Aragón and the Ebro region.
