The Cau del Duc is a karst cave on the southern slope of the mountain of Santa Caterina, in the Montgrí massif. There are different ways to get there, since the austerity of this side of the mountain limits the growth of vegetation, but the most accessible comes from the Coll de Santa Caterina or de la Creu, following the "rocks planes". There is a large opening on the south face that is visible from the town of Torroella de Montgrí, a few meters below the summit. The roof is a few meters high and the floor makes a slight slope outwards. It is a rocky shelter that was occupied by hominids during the Palaeolithic. Inside the cave was found the peak of Montgrí.
