The municipal district of Salt, with an extension of 6,6092 km 2, is one of the smallest of the regions of Girona; It is located in the center-west end of the Gironès region and occupies one of the most good and generous floodplains in the region thanks to the continuous and regular action of the Ter River, probably the most decisive and significant element of its natural environment.
The municipal district of Salt is 83.7 m above sea level, according to the testimony still alive that we can find in the old station of the neighborhood, today converted into the Young Station, where the "train", with its kindly air, He was heading towards Olot.
Its geographical boundaries are: in the north, with the municipality of Sant Gregori to the east, with Santa Eugènia de Ter, Girona and Palau Sacosta; to the south, Vilablareix, and finally, to the west, Bescanó.
The hydrographic network is basically formed by the Ter River, which crosses the municipality from west to east and serves as the limit of Salt's municipal terms with Sant Gregori and Girona, and establishes the northern border of the municipality.
In addition to the Ter River, the surface water network has other elements: on the one hand, the natural drains of the last buttresses of the Guilleries, which are the Maçana, Marroc and the Rera Mus, which end directly and indirectly on the Ter river and, on the other, the artificial irrigation that hangs from the Monar ditch, which at the same time connects directly with the river Ter. All of them allow watering the area between the river and the ditch. Except for this small agricultural space, delimited by the river and the ditch, Salt is a large urbanized area as a result of a process that had its most sharp moment during the seventies and eighties of the twentieth century.
