The Ebro’s Delta with 320 km2 of surface, declared natural park on 1983 is located at the south of Catalunya and is the biggest wetland of this area and the second on the Iberic peninsula (after Doñana) and the third of the Mediterranean after the Nile (Egypt) and Rodano (France).
The Ebro Delta is a great deltaic plain where the highest areas do not exceed 5 meters. The Ebro river is responsible for this formation, with a length of 920 km. The Ebro is born in Fontibre (Cantabria) exactly at the peak of the three seas or Colgosa, it transports materials-sediments for the entire course of the river until reaching the Mediterranean, depositing them and forming the last 30 km to the east of our magnificent delta.
The Ebro river divides the Delta into two Hemidelta (north and south). The northern hemidelta is in the Bajo Ebro region with capital Tortosa and the southern hemidelta is in the Montsià region with capital Amposta.
70% of the Ebro Delta is cultivation, 20% are natural areas and the rest are urban areas.
The economic bases of the Ebro Delta are agriculture, tourism, hunting and fishing
The Ebro Delta Natural Park has a great diversity of environments or ecosystems (lagoons, tusks, salt marshes, sea, dunes, bays, rice fields, river islands, littoral etc …) thanks to the great diversity of environments it also houses a great diversity of organisms (birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians) and a great diversity of vegetation.
One of the main environments of the Ebro Delta is the rice fields, which is its main economic base. The rice paddy, despite being an artificial medium transformed by man, behaves like a temporary wetland.
Thanks to the rice fields at any time of the year it is worth visiting the Ebro Delta and being able to enjoy the different colors it acquires:
Blue when the fields are flooded (April and May).
Green when the rice plant covers the water (June and July)
Yellow or gold when the grain has matured (August and September)
Brown when the fields are dry (from October to March)
