The ten unmissables
1. The city of the Ebro and the felucca
To discover Tortosa is to discover the Ebro river
The capital of the county is synonymous with this mythical river that lent its name to the whole Iberian Peninsula. The old railway bridge and the Pont de l’Estat are two perfect spots to contemplate and enjoy the magnificent views over the Ebro. One of the best places to soak up the charm of this ancient river is aboard Tortosa’s felucca, Lo Sirgador. The pier is located next to the Municipal Market. This iconic boat is a recreation of old-fashioned feluccas and offers a first-rate tourist experience. The boat sails along a regular route that lets those aboard enjoy the city’s historic riverfront and the riverside forest around the island of Xiquina. It also offers special routes with live music and wine tasting sessions.
