The valley of Ebro river

Today I talk about this natural region

The river Ebro is the most important Mediterranean river in the Peninsula. Is the longest totally in Spain.
I talk of the medium and the end of the river.

Ebro start in Cantabria and cross part of Burgos, but I will talk about this area another day. Today I talk about La Rioja, Navarra, Aragón and Catalunya.

The Valley is very windy in winter. Also fog is very important in winter, in some areas could be some weeks without sun.
The region isn’t very rainy, with some desert, not totally natural, because was the extensive use of the furniture and the sheep that help to disappear the trees. Climate isn’t desert, sometimes have heavy thunderstorms. Irregular rainfall like in most of Mediterranean region.

The Biggest cities of this region are Logroño, Zaragoza, Lleida.

Southeast of Spain is the real desert of Europe.
Calm river in Logroño.

The weather is hard in this region, winter with fog or wind, despite some ocasional showers. The feeling of cold, humid or to dry with the wind.

Spring big contrast in day and night temperatures. Thunderstorms are normal at this time of the year, the most rainy time.

Summer is warm, sometimes 40°. Nights aren’t very cold in big cities, a little bit better than Mediterranean cities but still warm nights.

Autumn in the east is posible have the Mediterranean famous situation of heavy rain in October. November start the fog days, first some hours, but In December could be even weeks.

The water of the river and all the rivers of the Pyrenees make this region rich in agriculture
Big flat areas

I will continue until the end of the river and the amazing Delta another day.

The river has lot of big lakes to control, but sometimes in Spring with heavy rains the floods are important in this region.

In the lakes are the material that need the Delta to survive. Delta is like we now for they cut the trees for furniture to make ships to fight again England. It make that part of the floor went to the river and form one of the most important Delta in Mediterranean. Lot of species of birds, the rice are in serious danger. The last famous Gloria bring lot of problems to the region.
