Laguna del Cañizar
This lake is one of the greatest natural attractions of the region of Teruel. Since 2006, this wetland between Cella
is being restored in different steps in which can practically be followed as a live project.The target is to control 300 to 400 ha
of flood, making profit of an environment that was drained throughout history to exploit the richness of the soil for growing crops. Before 1729, when the process for complete drying started, a total length of nearly 10 km2
has been reached.
Today the lake has several stations as well as network of waterways to observe and study the wildlife. Moreover, its recovery center for wildlife and environmental monitoring has recently been formally openned. This theme center, where a guide will show you the environmental quality of the landscape or you can find various activities related to environmental education, aims to become the heart of this space.
