About this book

Language: Catalan

On the coast of Tarragona, a port city in northeastern Spain’s Catalonia region, halfway between the capital and the Ebro delta, there is a small area where the light of the Mediterranean feeds flowers, shrubs, and plants, producing an exquisite aroma. This is a paradise of Mediterranean flora, rich in colours and smells, and the Sierra Vandellòs, Valley of Llors and the coast of L'Hospitalet de l'Infant accommodate an exceptional flora that nearly overwhelm the senses every step you take when walking in the area.

Fields colored by rosemary and heather, thyme and honeysuckle, poppies and orchids, romeroles and wild roses... an endless and intoxicating list, which makes this region a paradise for botanists, and an oasis for hikers enjoying the solitude nature. Guia de Camp de la Flora de la Serra de Vandellòs, la Vall de Llors i l'Hospitalet de l'Infant aims to introduce this plant heritage to both locals and visitors, as contemplation, teaching and communication will further the preservation it deserves. It describes more than 350 plant species.

Summary in Catalan:
Al litoral de Tarragona, a mig camí entre la capital i el delta de l’Ebre, hi trobem un petit territori on la llum del Mediterrani alimenta flors i arbustos, ginestes i plantes, amb aromes exquisides. Paradís de la flora mediterrània, promíscua en colors i olors, la serra de Vandellòs, la vall de Llors i la costa de l’Hospitalet de l’Infant acullen una flora excepcional que explota cada primavera per al caminant.

Tenyeixen els camps romanins i brucs, farigoles i lligaboscs, roselles i orquídies, romeroles i rosers silvestres… Una llista interminable i embriagadora, que converteix aquest territori en un paradís per a botànics, i en un oasi per al senderista que gaudeix amb la solitud de la natura.

Aquesta Guia de camp vol donar a conèixer a locals i forans aquest patrimoni vegetal, perquè la contemplació, l’aprenentatge i la comunicació ajudin a preservar-lo com es mereix.
