Ebro River

The nexus between the towns on the riverbank

Until the train arrived and the roads were improved, the Ebro River was the main link between the towns located on its banks. Using modern means, you can visit a section of the route where steamboats and llaguts (traditional Catalan fishing vessels) used to bring passengers and goods from one place to another.

The Ebro River is the heart and soul of the region. It has always been a source of life, bringing people together and making trade and communication possible for centuries.In this region, the river connects the people to the sea and mountains and is an endless source of agricultural, fishing and tourist resources until it reaches the mouth of the sea.

In this final section, the esplanade of the Delta meets the rocky coastline of the southern coast of Catalonia. An area that is highly valued for its unspoilt beaches with calm, crystal-clear waters. This fluvial ecosystem with pebble beaches gives rise to indigenous flora and fauna, creating a marvellous natural environment.

The Ebro is the second largest river on the Iberian Peninsula with regard to the volume of water it moves each year and is the only major river on the Peninsula that flows into the Mediterranean.
