The Sils Lake Natural Area is one of the most important in inland Catalonia; contains a wide variety of habitats such as wetlands, floodplains and riparian forests
This mosaic offers great potential for biodiversity, which is why Sils Lake is included in the network of Protected Natural Areas of Catalonia and is part of the Natura 2000 Network, which includes the set of protected areas in European level.
300 years ago it was one of the most important lakes in Catalonia, until it was drained in the middle of the 19th century.
Restoration of the current permanent lagoon and floodplains began in 1998 to restore its biological richness.
Today we have a system of wetlands in the process of recovery with great natural potential and we are working so that, soon, this protected natural space will become of great importance for the conservation of the wetlands of our country.
