The Albera's massif natural park

This reserve known as the Paratge Natural d’Interès Nacional de l’Albera is found on the south part of the Albera massif and is characterised by two very different areas. To the west we find central European vegetation with humid groves of beech and oak, and to the east the flora of cork-oak and thicket is of a more Mediterranean nature, and it is here where the last remaining Mediterranean turtle populations live.

Cap de Creus' natural park

The Parc Natural del Cap de Creus is an area of great beauty located between land and sea. It boasts a unique geological setting and its formations and outcrops can be seen nowhere else in the world. The erosive effect of the Tramuntana north wind has created unusual structures transforming the landscape into one of distinctive beauty.

Natural park of the Empordà's Aiguamolls

The Empordà Wetlands, Aiguamolls de l’Empordà in Catalan, were created by the courses of the Fluvià and Muga rivers (l’Alt Empordà region) and the Ter and Daró rivers (el Baix Empordà region). Technically, these Wetlands extend across the whole of the bay of Roses and once formed numerous lakes, lagoons and marshlands. They were cut off from the sea by a sandbar. Over time the sediments deposited by the rivers have formed the present day lagoon.
