Delta del Llobregat, El Prat de Llobregat

4.9
#3 of 10 in Wildlife in Province of Barcelona
Water Body Wildlife Area
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.
