Birds and planes

Beside El Prat Airport lies the Llobregat river delta, where birds by the thousands rest on their migration between Europe and Africa.

An unexpected sight may be seen from airplanes on the runway: it’s the Llobregat Delta, a wetland extending for over 90 which is formed by the river flowing into the sea. Situated halfway between Europe and Africa, this ecosystem has lagoons that are essential resting and feeding places for migrating birds. Footpaths cross this area, allowing you to discover fertile fields where food is grown for the city’s markets, pine woods rooted in the sand, and amazingly pristine beaches.
