Located at La Banya Point on the peninsula of Els Alfacs, which stands at the western edge of the Ebro River Delta (Tarragona Province), the salt pans are connected to dry land by the beach of El Trabucador.
The Trinidad Salt Pans, which are the only sea-salt pans in Catalonia, are set within the Ebro River Delta Nature Reserve.
The persons working at the facilities are the only ones with access to the salt pan facilities, which are totally free of industrial pollution for this reason.
On their 970 hectares, the Trinidad Salt Pans generate a unique ecological habitat of aquifers and wetlands with diverse degrees of salinization and microhabitats which are very rich in nutrients. Here, 85% of the world population of an endangered bird species, the Corsican Gull, nests and maintains its scant numbers. Likewise, this is the home of the largest colony of flamingos and the only place where these beautiful birds breed and develop in all Catalonia. Additionally, the Trinidad Salt Pans are the home of one of Spain’s most numerous populations of Anatidae and waders.
