The Ebro Delta, covering 320 km2, is the largest aquatic habitat in Catalonia and has a rich diversity of environments. River, sea, bays, beaches, dunes, riparian forest, coastal lagoons, river islands and marshes make up its natural landscape, and together with the rice fields, it is home to a wide variety of fauna (birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates...) which have adapted to the different habitats.
This biological wealth contrasts with the profound human presence. In order to strike a balance between the natural environment and its exploitation by the population, the Catalan government established the Natural Park of Delta del Ebro (7,802 ha) in 1983, at the request of its inhabitants.
The Park and natural areas are privileged places to practise sports and outdoor activities. Showing off the most beautiful parts of our country is a privilege, whether we are talking about ecotourism, sports activities or nature tourism. The management teams of the natural park realize that visitors can enjoy their free time getting to know nature, to appreciate it and its heritage.
Climb up onto a mussel bed and savour the true gems of the bay. Mussels and oysters accompanied by cava and wine from the Terra Alta region will ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable experience. In addition you will also be able to observe the production process and the harvesting of our mussels and oysters. The team responsible for the Musclarium will explain the history and present day importance of this crop, which is so ingrained in our region, with the aid and support of an interesting audiovisual presentation.
