Abstract: Rocky coasts, widely present along the world shorelines, have been studied from different points of view. Some sectors of rocky coast at Catalonia has been mapped and described by several authors along time. This paper includes a revision of those studies and analyzes some topographical data in order to obtain a global geomorphological characterization of rocky coast including also its relation with other environmental factors such as waves, precipitations and lithology. Remarkable differences between North and South regions have been reported. Moreover, because of the importance of rock fall events as a process affecting this areas, one example of susceptibility analysis to rock fall at Tarragona coast has been presented.
