Delta del Llobregat, El Prat de Llobregat

(4.9/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Delta del Llobregat a centerpiece of your El Prat de Llobregat vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our El Prat de Llobregat vacation generator.

  • The LLobregat delta, is a natural area very close to Barcelona, 20 min. high diversity, where addition of a number of important birds and ducks, which can be seen from the numerous points of observation, as well as riparian vegetation and the dunes of the Mediterranean coast. Regardless it should be valued and praise to whom it may concern (Town Hall, Diputació, generalitat etc.) having taken over a space of much value for the use and enjoyment of the people.

  • There is this natural paradise of the Llobregat Delta ideal for walks along the river and see birds that nest among the wetlands between the industrial area of the Zona Franca de Barcelona and el Prat Airport. All without leaving the Metropolitan Area. There, the best is to cycling. You can also Park your car in the free parking from the viewpoint of aircraft landing and from there walk a km. inside the protected area only can walk.
