Amposta, capital of the Ebro Delta, is a city whose vast municipal area ranges from the mountains of the Serra de Montsià – which gives the county its name – to the Delta itself.
Thanks to this diversity, visitors to the city will find a host of different activities and sights all year round. The natural landscape is one of our most outstanding attractions, and visitors are often surprised and impressed by the vision of endless rice fields that change with the seasons.
Along the coastline are lagoons, reedbeds, huts, unspoilt beaches of fine sand and much more, inviting us to relax and forget about the day-to-day world for a moment. However, those seeking more lively celebrations, full of colour, need look no further than festivities such as: the Festa Major (our annual local festival), which takes place each 15 August; in winter, the Fair that takes place on 5-8 December, and St Lucy’s Market, which takes place around Christmas time; as well as shows celebrating local gastronomy and the fruit of the earth here, such as the Artichoke Fair in February, Mussel Day in June and Rice Day in October.
The City of Amposta is also the gateway to the Ebro Delta, a paradise of rich heritage, history, culture, natural beauty and tradition, not to mention an exquisite local cuisine.
Moreover, whilst sampling all these marvellous attractions, visitors will be made to feel completely at home throughout their stay, enjoying the warm welcome that the hospitable people of the Ebro Delta are always happy to extend to one and all.
