About Delta Llobregat Park to Prat Beach:

Delta de Llobregat nature reserve runs either side of the Llobregat river from Martorell to the coastline. This route covers the section in El prat next to the coastline and behind Barcelona El prat airport.

Torre Parque Fluvial Baix Llobregat is a watch tower open to the public with 360 panoramic views of the river delta and the town of el prat.

Torretta Mira Mare is a wooden watch tower next to the coast with views of the port, flood plain, river and ruins

Antiga Caserna Dels Carrabiners are abandoned ruined barrack buildings dating from 1844, when they were erected by the Royal Corps of Carabiniers to combat smuggling, in particular of tobacco, and keep watch over the coastline. During the military coup of 1936, the Carabiniers remained loyal to the Republic, and as a result were disbanded at the end of the Civil War. Between 1939 and 1970 the barracks were occupied by the Civil Guard.

Mirador Del Semaforis an abandoned and preserved visual semaphore tower. it was erected in 1887 in order to regulate coastal marine traffic and prevent accidents. The watchmen who lived there would notify Montjuic Castle of any incidents. They would also rescue the victims and salvage any shipwrecked vessels and their contents. The building was preserved by the ACA (Catalan Water Agency) courtesy of the water company Aigues Ter Llobregat (ATLL), as territorial compensation for the installation of the metropolitan desalination plant.

The semaphore and former military barracks are located amid wetland flora, with flooded marshes, reeds, seablite and marsh samphire, along with significant populations of esparto grass. The peacefulness of the unspoiled beach where it stands means that various species of birdlife feed there, including the Kentish plover (which also breeds here), the Audoin's gull and the osprey.
