Aiguamolls Of the Empordà

The Natural Park of the Aiguamolls of the Empordà is one of the natural zones more known and emblematic of Catalonia, since his creation, year 1983, was consequence of an intense and long campaign of defence initiated in 1976 to stop a project of urbanisation that pretended to build a marine residential for 60.000 people in the system lagunar situated between the mouths of the rivers Muga and Fluvià.

The pantanales empordaneses occupied, in the past, almost all the plain of the bay of Roses and of the low Ter. To be able to us do an idea, the macizo of the Montgrí found isolated by the waters, and the Greeks founded Empúries in an island between the ancient mouths of the rivers Fluvià and Ter.

That extensive area of pantanales was disappearing owing to the desiccation by aprovechamientos agricultural and graziers to avoid the paludismo, and from the years 60, owing to the speculation urbanística. If during the year 1976 had not initiated the campaign of defence, at present would not remain any trace of this humid zone.

The year 1983, the Parliament of Catalonia approved by unanimity the Law of protection of the Aiguamolls of the Alt Empordà. The ones of the Baix Empordà, that is to say, the zone of the low Ter and of Pals, remained out of the Law but finally have remained included inside the Plan of Spaces of Natural Interest (PEIN) and expects that in the long run they turn into natural reservations.
