Espais Naturals del delta del Llobregat
The natural areas of the Llobregat delta are a network of protected areas that belong to the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans, Gavà and Sant Boi de Llobregat, near Barcelona city.
When you visit them, you will be surprised at the great biological diversity that they can accommodate. They are placed close to farming fields, surrounded by some of the most important infrastructures in the country and near the main metropolitan cities. We can find different natural environments: the final part of the river Llobregat, lagoons and wetlands, coastal pine groves on dunes, and virgin beaches with dune vegetation, almost unique in Catalonia. They are significant areas for their fauna, especially for aquatic birds, because they are located just in the middle of the birds’ migratory route that goes form Northern Europe to Africa. They have extremely valuable vegetation including a scarce population of Kosteletzkya pentacarpos in Catalonia and Stachys maritima. Additionally, more than 22 different species of orchids have been found there.
There is no metropolis in the Mediterranean which enjoys marshes of such international relevance. It is a place to visit, to discover the natural environment and to enjoy the landscape, a place where the conditions of observation of flora and fauna are exceptional. And best of all: close to Barcelona!
