One of the most important and spectacular heritage elements that we have in Catalonia is the monumental olive trees of the Terres de l’Ebre. The largest concentration is found around the Sénia river, in the Montsià region.
Together with these monumental olive groves we find a unique heritage, housing a great and important biodiversity with flora and fauna species and the cultural heritage linked to traditional agricultural activity that has been preserved over time. Xavier Jiménez Llobera, GEPEC-EdC president and Marc Torrents Camps, GEPEC-EdC technical director, will come this September to talk to us about their project, the creation of the Terres de l’Ebre Monumental Olive Reserve, where there will also be a guided outing with registration on our website on Sunday 24 September, to visit them.
This project focuses on implementing a socio-economic dynamism strategy based on ecological cultivation, linking it with the conservation and valorization of the olive groves themselves, of the biodiversity they host and of the cultural heritage through the territory custody. These monumental olive groves constitute one of the most impressive and ancient agricultural landscapes in Europe and in the World.
