DELTA DEL EBRO

The Ebro Delta Natural Park is located at the mouth of the river Ebro in the province of Tarragona, between the regions of the Lower Ebro and the Montsiá, in the southernmost part of Spain. Catalonia. It was declared a natural park in August 1983, and expanded in 1986. It currently has a total area of ​​7,736 hectares (3979 hectares in the right hemidelta and 3757 hectares in the left hemidelta). The Ebro River, the largest river in the Iberian Peninsula, is the main responsible for this environment, bringing the materials ripped from its head to deposit here, in conjunction with the Mediterranean. The sediments are therefore materials from the Pyrenees, the Iberian system and the Cantabrian Mountains, places where the river is born and tributaries of it. The amount of sedimented material has created an area of ​​more than 320 km², in which numerous habitats have been formed. The current form of the Delta is a perfectly drawn “arrow” that penetrates about 22 km into the sea, creating the third largest delta in the Mediterranean after the Nile Delta with 24,000 km² and the Rhone, covering an area of ​​500 km² . The Ebro Delta is the largest wetland in Catalonia and one of the most important in Western Europe behind the Camargue Regional Park in France and the Doñana National Park in southern Spain.



Activities in the Delta


Any time of year is good for one of the most popular activities in the Ebro Delta: birdwatching. Of course, depending on the season you will find more or less birds and a greater or lesser variety of species. Some of them have stable colonies there, such as colorful flamingos or elegant egrets, and others are only visible in the Delta during the summer season (imperial heron, heron crab …) or winter (alcatraz, large cormorant …).

The Natural Park of the Ebro Delta houses several protected areas with restricted access in whole or in part. One such area is Punta del Fangar, a peninsula of 400 ha. In the north of the Delta where seals and gulls habitually nest. The most striking of this place is its desert aspect, with its peculiar mobile dunes extending along 6 km by the sea.

One of the places to see in the Ebro Delta, yes or yes, is Playa del Trabucador, a 6 km long beach that stretches from the south of La Tancada to Punta de la Banya, a restricted access area. This beach is unique for several reasons. For starters, the sea baths the East and the West, so when you travel (you can access by car and bicycle) you see the sea on both sides. And that is his second peculiarity: in some points it is really narrow … about 50 meters separate their two banks. But the most striking visual level is the spectacle of kitesurfing.

Seafood of the Delta

The Ebro Delta is the area of Catalonia with more tradition in the production of rice.

Everything revolves around rice in the Delta del Ebro, one of the three places in Spain with Protected Designation of Origin (D.O.P). The rice fields, those huge fields flooded with water that are lost on the horizon, are the main protagonists of the landscape and have transformed life in the Delta of the Ebro since the seventeenth century. Especially that of humans and birds. Today, for example, there is no restaurant in the area that does not offer rice in your menu.
