⚙ NATURAL PARK OF MONTGRÍ & ILLES MEDES - Cala Montgó, l'Escala, Costa Brava ⚙
 

NATURAL PARK MONTGRÍ & ILLES MEDES

The Montgrí mountain has recently been declared a Natural Park and protected area. 8000 hectares of surface, 2000 of which are marine area. It encompasses a range of diverse landscapes and Mediterranean coastal ecosystems, among which are the islands and coastal cliffs several nesting seabird species, and extensive limestone plateaus of semiesteparis Montgrí.

Rich in natural resources, it is a first-rate tourist attraction with an undeniable "humanist" character that binds the growing practice of sport and concern for healthy living, which attracts more respectful people and probably happier. To all of you, we offer a number of online resources that we hope will be helpful.
