Back

From the city of Barcelona to the Ebro Delta, the largest wetland area in Catalonia and a biosphere reserve, this route will take you from the sea to the sea passing through the interior, through lands that have been worked and built by the hand of man for centuries.

Leaving behind the Catalan capital you will cross the Ordal Mountains to enter the Penedès plain with its two capitals, one of wine and one of cava, Vilafranca and Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. The vineyards will lead you to the monasteries of the Cistercian Route which have stood as a historical and cultural referent of the Crown of Aragon since the 12th century.

Crossing the Prades Mountains and skirting the foothills of the Montsant mountain range, the abrupt slate landscape characteristic of the Priorat will connect the vines planted on terraces, producers of some of the most prestigious wines in the world, with medieval villages and monasteries fallen in disuse where silence and tranquillity reign.

After Falset you will cross the Ebro to enter landscapes that saw some of the most tragic episodes of the Spanish Civil War battle that bears the river’s name, but also home to the magnificent wine cellars known as the Wine Cathedrals.

The river will guide you towards Tortosa, the historical capital of the Terres de l’Ebre, where its course softens, already anticipating its mouth, a few kilometres beyond, surrounded by the immense richness of fauna displayed in such a characteristic natural space as the Ebro Delta.
