The Biotop of Torredembarra is the underwater pyramid of the Mediterranean

The first artificial biotope of this size in the world. A unique show that has served to regenerate the native marine fauna and flora in Torredembarra

 

The Biotop of Torredembarra is the first large underwater reef created in the Mediterranean.

The structure of the biotope has a conical, pyramid shape, and is made up of 40,000 tons of calcium carbonate rocks measuring between 1 and 2 m3.

The base of this impressive reef is located 32 meters deep and has a total height of 18 meters. The highest part of the underwater pyramid is 14 meters deep.

The construction of the Biotop of Torredembarra was completed in 2023 and the intention behind its project was to restore the ecological balance in the area, with the natural reintroduction of native species.

This project not only seeks to protect marine biodiversity, but also promotes environmental education and awareness in our society.

A year after its completion, the Biotop has an impressive permanent cloud of marine life around it, it has become one of the few known sunfish cleaning stations, so its sightings are common, and there have already been recorded several dives with dolphin sightings by divers.

In conclusion, the Torredembarra Biotop, with only one year of existence, has become an undisputed benchmark for underwater environmental studies and one of the most spectacular dives that can be done in the Mediterranean Sea.
