Year after year, Amposta holds the traditional rice festivals at the Restaurant L’Estany. In June, when planting season begins, visitors are given the chance to actively participate. A group of farmers shows the audience how the predecessors of the Ebro Delta planted the rice fields. In October, during the harvest festival, using the sickle, the farmers show how the rice fields are harvested and the sheaves are brought from the place of harvest to the threshing floor, where they are beaten to get the grain off the stalk.
