Access to the swimming holes of Les Planes d’Hostoles will be regulated to a maximum capacity of 200 people per day to ensure sanitary measures and also to ensure the preservation of this protected natural space. In this way, access will be guaranteed in the safest way possible, while at the same time ensuring the preservation of the natural environment.
The ticket for adults will cost € 5, and will be free for children under 12, always accompanied by an adult. These contributions will be used to develop actions to conserve the biological diversity of this protected natural space and to carry out maintenance actions to adapt the space to public use.
This measure wants users of this space to be able to enjoy it with all the guarantees, respecting health and safety measures to protect themselves, and respecting the environment and the natural environment to preserve biodiversity. Failure to comply with the rules of use and access may lead to administrative sanctions.
The City Council of Les Planes d'Hostoles and the Emys Foundation have been working together since 2018 to regulate the uses and accesses to the protected natural area of the river Brugent as it passes through the municipality. This is an ongoing collaboration that has managed to regulate uses and access to the natural environment and raise public awareness of its values. This action is part of a global strategy of the municipality that is committed to sustainable development and that allocates 0.5% of the IBI to the improvement of fauna, flora and landscape.
Tickets can be purchased from the Fundació Emys website.
