From “beginning of time” there has been olives grown here. Our plantation 38.000 m2 is preserved biological and has 400 olive trees mainly several hundred of years old about 100 carob trees and many otherfruit-, nut-, and spices-trees andbushes.
A single olive tree thousand years old near the house is preserved through the ages as a shaded pavilion 45 meters in circumference.
Have a walk in the small but deep valley of the plantation – which has grown wildly – and you will see rosemary, thyme, St. John’s wort, asparagus figs, grapes, carob, laurent- almond-, and walnuts-trees and a tomb. The area is visited from time to time by wild boars and a Golden Eagle family of 3 eagles which lives in the close by mountains.
The area has its own “micro climate”, and is one of the most dry and sunny places in Spain. In summer when most warm often comes a refreshing breeze from the mountains!
The area and Tortosa are mentioned in the history. “Hannibal” gathered his troops here before the invention of Rome. The city of Tortosa writes its history back to the time of Christ. A huge fort, the old town and the cathedral is worth a visit. There are good shops and a lively arts scene.
The narrow mountain road via “Col de Alba” with its landscape and views are a “must”!.
Only within 1 hour (45 km) you are at the top of the nearest Mount Caro 1442 m. and the National Park with a dramatic view. Here you often meet mountain goats, golden eagles and vultures.
Up river Ebro you may visit Miravet Castle and the old town (75 km). A small ferry driven by the river current takes you over the river.
Ebro Delta has a large production of rice and mussels and a very rich fishing from its beaches. Together with the Mediterranean the Delta gives the air humidity. The river it’s self is famous for its cat fishing and excursion possible by vessel or rent a small boat.
Ebro Delta Natural Park is famous for bird watching with a population of Flamingos
