apartments for sale on the beachfront, near the prat de cabanes-torreblanca
On the occasion of the International Soil Conservation Day, celebrated on July 7, 2023, we want to talk to you about the natural environment that makes the location chosen for our Ciudad Jardín project special. In this project you will find the beachfront apartments for sale in an incomparable environment.
Our buildings are built next to the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca Natural Park, so respect for the environment that surrounds them is a maxim in their construction.
Soil is a complex system in constant change, and a living element that must be taken into account if you want to combine the construction of new projects and positive environmental policies by the company.
The soil serves as a support for all forms of life and is also the substrate for the growth of vegetation, vegetation that surrounds us and that makes this project special.
There is a vegetal strip of special importance between the Garden City buildings and Torre la Sal beach. It is a unique habitat given its characteristics and the plant and animal species it houses. This space is called a salt marsh.
The salt marshes they are one of the most peculiar ecosystems in Europe. They contain elements typical of wetlands and yet they are usually located in arid environments. Salt marshes are considered an ecological treasure since they are fragile, easily alterable and scarce ecosystems.
The salt marshes are an important place for migratory birds that make periodic seasonal use of these enclaves. In addition, they represent a natural protection barrier for the coast.
The protected natural area of Prat de Cabanes – Torreblanca, is a narrow strip of marshes and swamps located on the coast between Torreblanca and Cabanes. It was declared a Natural Park in 1994 and has 912 hectares.
The park stands out for its vitally important fauna, living in it endemic species (which only reside in this area of the world), such as the gambeta, the fartet or the samaruc.
They also represent an incomparable ecological value, the plant species present in this area, being composed of three large groups of communities:
- Aquatic and semi-aquatic plant communities.
- Includes floating vegetation and semi-aquatic vegetation (those plants that root on the bottom and have part of them above the water).
- We highlight the marsh, within which are the reeds.
- salt marsh communities
- Like salicornia.
- Coastal cordon communities
- Like sandgrass, a salt-tolerant variety of wheat.
As we already mentioned, the park has animal species present only in this part of the world, such as the samaruc fish. The Generalitat Valenciana has the Samaruc Recovery Plan underway, developed in several natural parks, including the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca Natural Park.
Also living in this natural area is the European pond turtle, a species in serious decline.
The Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca Natural Park participates in the European project LIFE TRACHEMYS, which aims to protect local species of Galapagos invaded by invasive species due to the misuse that their owners have made of these animals.
It is important to highlight the role that this space plays for the migrations of numerous species of aquatic and marine birds, which use the park to feed and rest before continuing their journey.
The Park has an Interpretation Center, a recreational area and parking, information posts and four possible itineraries to explore it.
