The old bridge, waterfront & old quarter
The old quarter runs up from the bridge to the Parador and is a maze of barrio building ranging from shells with no walls, through to desirable apartment blocks if you wanted to take on a serious renovation project.
The Parador is situated above the old quarter of the city with commanding views across the Ebro river and the surrounding countryside. On clear days you can easily see Mas de Barberans perched on the side of the Els Ports mountains. It was built there to protect the river traffic from bandits and coastal marauders. It had a deep well which provided fresh water and enabled the inhabitants to withstand prolonged sieges.
