A preliminary inventory of 14 points of geological interest has been carried out in the Manresa municipality (Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain). All the rocks within this area belong to the sedimentary infill of the Ebro basin that took place during the Eocene. The municipality is relatively small and contains a relevant heritage of of sedimentology, paleontology and, to a lesser extent, geomorphologic and structural. The proposal of points of geological interests includes several relatively small outcrops that display: geomorphology (a rock bridge), two sedimentary structures (a slump and cross bedding), clastic sedimentology, a reef, faults, joints, and two fluvial 394 terraces. Another point combines geomorphology, sedimentology and mineralogy. Finally, the relatively larger Malbalç geozone is the most remarkable point and includes paleontology, sedimentology, geomorphology and ancient quarrying. In 1926 this was visited as part of the XIV International Geological Congress. The whole set of points of geological interest are ideal to teach geology for the divulgative to academic level.
