A water crossroads

Baix Llobregat is an ideal region for water lovers, since it's difficult to find a corner where you can't hear the flow of a river or the waves of the sea. In the triangle formed by the towns of Collbató, Castelldefels and El Prat you can explore caves, pools, wetlands and beaches of great natural value, along with plenty of elements of historical and cultural interest, such as mines, textile colonies, wells and locks. You're sure to be surprised by some of the main tourist attractions of the area.

In 2005, seven buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí were inscribed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Six of them are extremely well known: the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, Casa Vicens, Parc Güell, Palau Güell and Casa Batlló. However, the seventh architectural gem in the list, the Crypt of the Colònia Güell, is much less famous. It’s an architectural masterpiece in which the author of impossible works tested his considerable intellect.

Without a doubt, the Llobregat Delta is one of the most unspoiled natural areas on the Costa Barcelona, a real natural paradise next to the sea, and just a stone’s throw from the Catalan capital, boasting a diversity of flora and fauna that’s hard to match anywhere else in the Mediterranean. Here are just four of the many ways to explore these fabulous landscapes:
