LA CARROVA TOWER

A not-to-be-missed visit to discover the history of Amposta

Carrova Tower is located about 4 km from Amposta, parallel to the Ebro River. It sits on top of a small hill, which was originally a strategic point to control river traffic.

Useful information

This robust structure in an austere Gothic style dating from the 14th century is an interesting example of the mediaeval defence towers on the lower course of the Ebro.

Nearby, you can find a picnic area, Carrova Fountain, Ullals del Boscaso—which are small lagoons protected for their great environmental value—and the remains of a Roman villa currently undergoing reconstruction.
