A space of coexistence between water, earth, humans and nature.
The Aiguamolls de L'Empordà in the past occupied almost all the plain of the bay of Roses and the lower Ter river.The Montgrí massif was set away from the waters, and when the Greeks settled here, they did so on an island between the former mouths of the rivers Fluvià and Ter, where they later founded Empúries. The extensive marshland gradually disappereared, due mainly to the expansion of agriculture.The wide Castellò Lake, with is three islands, and lakes of Siurana, Vilacolum, Riumors, Bellcaire,Ullastret and Pals are now also part of history.
The construction of tourist facilities was another degration factor. Extensive areas disappeared and were turned into housing developments.
