Middle of November and temperature of 25 degrees at noon in the Banyoles pond. Fantastic time to enjoy the lake and its surroundings, as we see in La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos, but worrying due to the confirmation of climate change.
It is the largest pond in Catalonia and was part of the 1992 Olympics. It is a beautiful place, rich in flora and fauna, with several very well indicated itineraries to discover the lake and its surroundings.
There are small boats that can be rented for a ride, although there are also other activities, such as fishing, rowing or swimming.
Bordering the lake on foot allows you to observe and photograph its rich fauna and flora. Walking, distracted by the landscape, you can cover the 6 km circuit. There are walkways and viewpoints that border the lake and bring you closer to the water to contemplate it.
Fishing stands out. These buildings are similar to small mansions. They are the evolution and consolidation of the old walkways that, due to the shallow depth of the banks of the pond, were built for fishing.
