In het Engels
Medes Islands Situated in the heart of the Costa Brava, the Medes Islands constitute one of the principal marine flora and fauna reserves in the Western Mediterranean, a privileged natural area for visitors to this area and a much appreciated scuba-diving destination. The archipelago covers an area of approximately 23 hectares and is situated a mile off the Costa Brava, just opposite L’Estartit beach. The Medes Islands are a set of seven islets called La Meda Gran , La Meda Petita , El Medellot (or La Bota ), El Carall Bernat, Les Ferranelles, Els Tascons Grossos and Els Tascons Petits. The Medes Islands were listed as a marine reserve in 1983 and since then the area has seen a spectacular recovery of the rich seabed and of many sea and land species previously in danger of extinction. The pleasure of diving and boating around this beautiful seascape is thus enhanced making this an ideal place to spend a holiday. Some history The islands are uninhabited today but shipwreck remains testify to ancient Greek ships navigating these seas in classical times. Findings of lachrymatory phials and human bones suggest that the islands may have been used as a necropolis. In the 15th century, a fortress was constructed on La Meda Gran , and inhabited by the knights of St. Sepulchre. The monks eventually left and the fortress partially caved in after numerous pirate attacks in the 16th century. Throughout the 18th century wars the fortress was used as a prison and later as a military garrison until 1890. Today the Medes Islands are uninhabited. The lighthouse The first lighthouse was built on La Meda Gran in 1866, during the reign of Isabel II and was tended by a resident lighthouse keeper until 1930. The new automatic lighthouse is now powered by solar energy.
