ENVIRONMENT


From the Montgrí massif, dividing line with the Alt Empordà, the Lower Ter plain can be seen; defined from the south by the Begur mountains, at the foot of which lies Pals, and inland by the spurs of the Gavarres massif.

General view of the Baix Ter plain, with the town of Torroella and the massif of the Mongrí at the back. At the front is Pals

It’s mainly an agricultural plain (a bit strange if we take into account the proximity of important urbanized areas and the impact of touristic areas such as Pals and l’Estartit) containing an important number of lands dedicated to irrigation crops in the Baix Empordà. Closer to the sea, a few swamps of exceptional landscape, natural, environmental and ecological value can be found. We must emphasize the Ter Vell, Frare Ramón’s’ pond, the Pletera and Basses d’en Coll.
