Delta de l'Ebre

The largest wetland area in Catalonia is one of the most important in the Mediterranean region. The mouth of the river that gives its name to the whole of our lands constitutes a natural park of the first order with an incomparable wealth of flora and fauna that make it unique and exceptional. With a total surface area of 7,736 hectares, it covers the Baix Ebre and Montsià regions. Within its vast extension are the ponds of Les Olles, the Canal Vell, the Garxal, L'Alfacada, the Platjola, the Tancada and L'Encanyissada; and also the islands of Buda, Sapinya and Sant Antoni; the peninsulas of Punta de la Banya and Fangar, the moors of Casablanca and the Ullals de Baltasar. More than 500 different species give it a great potential with respect to vegetation, where the canyizales, reedbeds, eucalyptus and river honeysuckles stand out. It is necessary but not to forget the rice, the star legume of the area, the production of which occupies large extensions of deltaic land. With respect to the fauna, birds are of great importance in the area where between 50,000 and 100,000 specimens of 300 different species are quantified.

Els Ports

The Natural Park of Els Ports extends in the Catalan area of the mountains of Els Ports, a massif that exceeds the limits of Terres de l'Ebre and enters the provinces of Teruel (Aragon) and Castellón (Valencian Community). These mountain ranges stand out for the richness of the fauna and flora that live here and, in fact, are the refuge of many endangered animal and plant species. The presence of the Hispanic goat and the beech populations, which here have the southernmost enclave in Europe, stand out.

In addition, the geological formations draw a characteristic landscape unique in Catalonia.
We must not forget, either, the historical links that have been established between the populations that border the massif and the farmhouses in the area, now abandoned. The use of the natural resources of these places, such as hunting, livestock, timber extraction, lime and glue production, or the construction of snow wells, recall times of intense human presence in this natural space.

Lo pont de les Canals

The bridge of the channels, was built to save the ravine of the same name, to bring water to the village, dating from the late nineteenth century, and today passes through all the water we consume in the village.

Lo Castellet

As if it were a castle, a wall molded by the passage of time, and very unknown to most, it is located at the descent of l'Airosa, by a variant to the left.

El Raco del Moro

The corner of the Moor, is the end of the ravine of Lloret, probably one of the few places where we find water all year round, and as it does not touch the sun, it is not warm.

La Cova pintada

Shelter, located in a side ravine of the ravine of Lloret, the path with little unevenness and with imposing walls, leads us to the end of the ravine closed by a wall, and at the base, the painted cave. The cave, from afar does not seem anything special, when you are inside it is something else, the rough ceiling molded by the passage of time has given rise to a variety of colors that can only be imagined, seeing them.

Lo forat de la Vella

Located on the road to the leisure area of La Vall, on the left is the Racó dels Capellans (the Corner of the Priests) by the form of cassock (long dress to the feet that the priests wore) of many rock needles, is accessed by a bridge that crosses the ravine, following the path you reach the cave d'en Marc, shelter, which like many others served as shelter for flocks of sheep that not so long ago cleaned the forest, after a few steps we have the option to continue towards l'Airosa, on the right we see the Forat de la Vella (the Hole of the Old Woman), here you can see the work of many years of erosion, on the left there are routes for climbing, there is also a route on the wall opposite to touch the track, following the path we reach the water conduction, born of several sources and that supplies the people since 1885, with an irrigation ditch of 11km.
