Description of the route

This route has got the river port of Amposta as a starting point. In the direction of the old town, go up Carrer Sant Joan until you find Plaça de l’Aube.

Following  the right line of the Ebre canal, you leave the town, continuing along the parallel path on the right side of the Canal de l’Ebre. During the route to Torre de la Carrova, before crossing the AP-7 bridge, two old rice mills rise, currently disused. The landscape that’s observed is shaped by hundreds of small orchards which form an important  river terrace: some of which archaeological remains are in the Terres de l’Ebre Museum. Right next to the Tower is a roman villa.

Following the path you will find the Torre de la Carrova, of medieval origin. It was part of a set of watchtowers and defense towers built along the Ebre.
