Delta del Llobregat, El Prat de Llobregat

4.9
#4 of 7 in Nature in Province of Barcelona
Discover the varied plant and animal life of Delta del Llobregat. Over the centuries, human industry has transformed the vast, 98 sq km (37.8 sq mi) area of wetlands where the Llobregat River empties out into the Mediterranean, first through agriculture, and later through the encroaching urban sprawl of Barcelona. Today, only around 900 hectares (2,224 acres) of protected natural land remains, providing a refuge for wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for 350 species of bird, as well as butterflies, moths, dragonflies, and many other insects, amphibians, mammals, and fish. The park offers guided tours of its habitats, ensuring you get the most out of exploring the lakes, marshes, wet meadows, and beaches. Bird watchers can take a specialist ornithology guide. Alternatively, simply stroll at your own pace. Add Delta del Llobregat and other attractions to your El Prat de Llobregat trip itinerary using our El Prat de Llobregat trip app .

    Nice and simple excursion, suitable for all audiences that runs through the coastal lagoons that are part of the delta of the Llobregat River. Negligible slope. Trails are marked, care and lead to a beach protected from environmental interest area. Very close to airport is constant landing of aircraft, almost gives the feeling of being able to touch them with the tip of your fingers. This protected area, bird sanctuary, is located very close to the metropolis of Barcelona, so that it is easy to reach even by metro (line 9-South, stop Centric).
