Ebre River


The largest river in the Iberian Peninsula that flows into the delta de l'Ebre and is home to all kinds of species.

It is the most wide river in the Iberian Peninsula and passes through several autonomous communities. In the area of Catalonia it gives its name to Terres de l’Ebre and is where the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea.
The towns that surround it have got a strong relationship with the Ebre river because, historically, during the Spanish Civil War, it was very important during ‘’La Batalla de l’Ebre’’, because it was a key factor to continuing the fronts.
At the end of the Delta de l’Ebre is the estuary, which is formed by the sediments that the river drags to the sea, giving rise to the Delta de l’Ebre, which is the most humid area in Catalonia, being a protected area.
During its passage there are several islands, such as ”Illa de Buda” and ‘Illa de Gràcia”. These are the most important.
