It is a high mountain park with peaks that exceed three thousand meters in height. Rivers, ravines, waterfalls, swamps, more than 200 ponds of different shapes and colors and snow adorn this landscape … What else can you ask for your next high mountain audiovisual project?
National Park of the Ebro Delta
It is the largest wetland in Catalonia. The Delta del Ebro has an area of 320 square kilometers and stands out for its fabulous natural wealth, postcard landscapes and beaches worthy of any catalog. Stroll through the rice fields at dusk, explore the island of Buda by bike or take a boat ride to admire the many charms of a beautiful and incredibly special place. Just some of the ideas we can offer you for your audiovisual production or photo shooting .
Any beach is ideal to see a sunset, but the lonely ones of the Ebro delta, far from civilization, are almost unique in Catalonia. The kilometer-long beach of El Trabucador, a paradise for lovers of “Kite-surf”, allows you to enjoy the open sea and at the same time the closed bay of Alfacs. See how the sun sets in the distance behind the mountains of Els Ports National Park, an amazing view.
Massif of Montserrat
In the heart of Catalonia, the unmistakable profile of the Montserrat mountain can be seen from miles away. The rocky peaks give it a mountain look. You can go up by cable car and explore its trails while admiring the spectacular scenery. Its spectacular and beautiful morphology makes it a unique location in the world. All its mountain range is really spectacular, each one of its massifs has a different shape, but they complement each other in a wonderful natural view.
It has spectacular views and a variety of activities to do in your photographic shooting or audiovisual production such as hiking, climbing … without forgetting its Monastery located at the top of the mountain, where we will find the “Moreneta”, the Virgin of Montserrat.
Cabo de Creus
The Cap de Creus, the easternmost point of Spain, is not only the place where the Iberian Peninsula first dawns, but also a mysterious and magical spot where the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean meet. Its black rocks and extreme loneliness increase that image of the end of the world, collected more than once by the cinema.
In this great cape, with dark promontories of lunar appearance, there are fishing villages as Port de la Selva, Port Lligat or Cadaqués, one of the most sought-after urban parts of the Costa Brava. There are no great heights, but the entire coastline is broken by coves and small cliffs, ideal for your next audiovisual production.
Montseny Natural Park
It is quite close to the city of Barcelona and it is possible to enjoy an impressive landscape, especially in winter. Than you can see the high snow-capped peak, surrounded by the best preserved and lush forests in the area. In the same park, you find many towns worth visiting, many have maintained their spirit of villages dedicated to agriculture.
In its landscape you come across large mountain ranges and Mediterranean and Central European forests, a marvel to locate your photographic shooting or audiovisual production.
Natural Park dels Ports
Located between Catalonia, Valencia and Aragón we discover Els Ports Natural Park, a place formed by calcareous massifs and steep reliefs covering an area of 35,050 hectares . Despite appearing to be an untamed place, there are many routes to access it. The different geological formations, such as ravines, chasms, folds, faults and overhangs, draw a unique characteristic landscape. The importance of these natural values and the need to conserve them motivated the Government of Catalonia to create this Natural Park of Els Ports and the Partial Reserve of Les Fagedes dels Ports.
Aiguamolls de l'Empordá
It’s a unique place, of incalculable natural and scenic beauty, considered the second Catalan wetland in importance. The park can be discovered through well-marked and well-maintained trails.
The Natural Park of the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà is divided into two zones, the northern area and the southern area of the Muga River, which bring together the most characteristic elements of the landscape of the Alt Empordà. An extraordinary park for the vegetation, the animals, the light, the colors, the harmony and the balance that it offers. It allows you to escape to a truly charming place. Here you will find spectacular locations for a photographic shooting or audiovisual production.
Natural Park of the La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone
La Garrotxa is a region of Girona, very close to the Pyrenees. In its surroundings there are volcanoes such as the Crosscat and Santa Margarita, which are part of the National Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa. The Crosscat has been mining, and the second, the Santa Margarita, has a Romanesque hermitage inside the crater, an image undoubtedly original for your audiovisual project.
It is the best preserved volcanic landscape of the Iberian Peninsula, with about 40 volcanic cones and more than 20 lava flows. Despite being a volcanic area, the park offers lush vegetation with holm oaks, oak forests and the famous “La fageda d’En Jordà” beech forest.
Natural Park of Sant Llorenç de Munt
Large farmhouses, caves, Neolithic archaeological remains and a unique landscape formed by reddish monoliths and green pine trees and holm oaks form the Sant Llorenç del Munt Natural Park. Its main peaks are the Montcau (1,052 m) and the Mola (1,104 m), where the famous Monastery of Sant Llorenç del Munt is located, the most emblematic monument of the park.
It is one of the most beautiful places, you can walk there, feel its nature in its purest state and enjoy its roads, its caves and its spectacular views. An ideal background for your audiovisual production or photographic shooting.
Located in the Barcelona region of Berguedà in the Sierra del Cadí, within the area of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park. This mountain is known for its unique U shape: the top peak of 2,497 meters and the Calderer of 2,491 meters.
There are different routes in the area, all of them spectacular with dream views. The route is ideal for audiovisual productions related to climbing and high mountain sports, due to the difficulty of the road and its unevenness.
