Rivers

The lower stretches of Llobregat and Besòs Rivers flow across metropolitan territory conforming public spaces with an important natural and landscape value, as well as with a significant recreational and service use. Both rivers represent two natural corridors that structure the metropolitan area.

River areas

Besòs and Llobregat Rivers have been the subject of different solutions for the recovery of their value as a public space in the metropolitan area of Barcelona:
  • Concerning to Llobregat River, the AMB has coordinated and participated in the recovery process of this fluvial area with the creation of Llobregat River Park.
  • In the case of Besòs River, the recovery has been driven by town councils and the AMB.
  • Parc Riu Llobregat
    Riu Llobregat
    The metropolitan section of Llobregat River has a length of 30 km and crosses the territory of sixteen municipalities, from Pont del Diable (Devil's Bridge) in Martorell to its mouth in the Mediterranean. Within this area, the AMB is working to ecologically and socially recover a complex area where infrastructures and services coexist with environment and leisure activities.

    Riu Besòs
    Besòs River Park is part of the Consortium for the Protection of the Besòs River Basin. In its last 5 km, it is an area of public use that runs within the riverbed, from the B-20 bridge and Can Zam Nord, in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, to the railway bridge in Sant Adrià de Besòs. In the paved area citizens can move walking and cycling. In the left bank, width is enough to provide a sign-posted bike lane.

Projects and works

Llobregat area

Llobregat River Park is the result of an open territorial transformation project located in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. The affected area extends from Pont del Diable (Devil's Bridge) of Martorell to Llobregat Delta, and includes, apart from the main fluvial area of the river, connections with tributary streams and entrances to the main urban centres located in the immediate vicinity of Llobregat River. On the whole, it is a complex area of over 1,000 hectares, profoundly altered and with serious ecological imbalances, both structural and functional.
