2. Amposta: MónNatura Delta de l'Ebre Entrance Ticket
Explore the wetlands of the MónNatura Delta de l’Ebre and journey through fresh water and salt water to discover the most amazing fish and birdlife.
The MónNatura Delta de l’Ebre project was inaugurated in 2012 in the Tancada lagoon, and is one of the most important wetlands of western Europe. The salt, birds, and traditional fishing methods are the 3 key features, and they can all be explored with your entrance ticket.
Visit the only full scale recreation of one of the Delta’s salt pans open to the public. Discover how the Delta was formed over the centuries, and experience the changing seasons throughout a typical year via an audiovisual presentation. Watch the wildlife of the Alfacada lagoon from the partially enclosed bird observatory. Telescopes are at your disposal for better views of the flamingos, terns, waders, herons and more that live and rest in the lagoon.
Around the landing stage, you will see examples of traditional Delta fishing techniques, such as casting nets, dredging nets, and eel and shrimp nets. You can also go aboard the punts, the traditional means of transport in the shallow water.
See wildlife such as waders, terns, avocets, and gulls in the old Sant Antoni salt pans. Explore the area’s variety of saline vegetation and how it has evolved to survive the environment.
