That the Ebro Delta is a singular, fragile and curious space is nothing new at this point. In this article we would like to help you optimize your time in a must-see to know the special personality of this territory.
A combination of cultural, ornithological visit, beach and excellent gastronomy in a single day. Through the route that we propose, we will go to Poblenou del Delta. One of the jewels of the Ebro Delta. The Ibizan style town, formerly built and inhabited by settlers who built the irrigation network of the Delta, today has become a picturesque town in the middle of a land of rice fields. It offers its visitors a varied gastronomic offer based on the star products of the territory, that is to say: rice from the delta, fish and shellfish from the bay of the Alfaques, wine from the highlands, and the affable character of the inhabitants of the delta. A combination that is well worth a visit.
And the place we recommend you visit is the "Casa de Fusta". It is literally the first wooden house (prefab in Canada) seen in the Delta in the late 19th century. The well-to-do men and women of Barcelona required a comfortable home when they visited the Delta to hunt and fish. This house, currently owned by the Delta Natural Park, today has been converted into an ornithological museum, where you can see the species, some already disappeared from this territory, that were previously easily found.
Next to it, the imposing Laguna de la Encanyissada. Nesting place for different birds, which can be seen from the observatory just in front of us. Those who want to do some sport, and at the same time enjoy observing nature, can use the bike path that surrounds the perimeter of the LLacuna (approx. 11 kilometers), without unevenness, and at an easy level. We only need good sun protection, a hat, binoculars, and a supply of water.
Live the experience of getting to know the Ebro Delta better. Visit Món Natura.
This activity that we propose is an activity to enjoy with the family. Because it is the best way as a family that you will enjoy the facilities of Mon Natura-Delta del Ebro. Managed by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, it offers, at very affordable prices, guided tours of its facilities, where learning is combined with respect for nature, and fun. The little ones at home will learn about the formation process of the Ebro Delta, from the point of view of geology, with a very entertaining and practical audiovisual. Next, we will know the importance of salt, in ancient times, and today.
We will enjoy our first steps as ornithologists, first learning the basic notions, and then observing from its privileged viewpoint to Llacuna de la Tancada. Finally, after an exhibition of traditional fishing gear, they will teach us to "perch" (row) with the typical boats of the Ebro Delta. The pontonas. Light, flat-bottomed boats, suitable for navigating the extensive network of irrigation channels in the Delta.
A visit from this entity certainly whets the appetite. We recommend you to taste a delicious grilled paella at the renowned restaurant "Lo Pati dels Flamencs". A menu consisting of various starters of seafood and seasonal mollusks will whet your appetite. The main dish is paella, in any of the many varieties they offer, with that touch of smoke, and cooked in the most genuine Valencian style.
Don't you wish for this time of day to come? A day that can end with a bath and nap in the neighboring Playa del Trabucador, and in the next facilities in Las Salinas. Where your children will remind you of everything they learned in the morning, and will begin to enjoy the fauna that surrounds them. Who said there was no paradise?
