Miravet, a castle overlooking the river Ebre

Visit the Templar castle and take a boat trip or a kayak on the river
Miravet Castle
The Templar castle of Miravet is an imposing fortress surrounded by a 25-meter-tall wall. It is located on the top of a hill and affords magnificent views over the river Ebre. Its strategic position has given it an important role in numerous conflicts over the course of history.
The last boat passage
The Miravet ferry crossing is the last river ferry that allows you to cross the Ebre River between Miravet and the C-12 (Eix de l'Ebre). It is made up of two bays (called Isaac Peral and Monturiol) joined by a platform that can hold up to three cars. You can also rent canoes or kayaks.
The Iberian settlement of Castellet de Banyoles
Castellet de Banyoles, in the municipality of Tivissa, just a 20 minutes from Miravet by car, is one of the most important Iberian settlements in Catalonia. It was here that the so-called Treasure of Tivissa was found, consisting in what are considered to be the finest examples of the Iberian gold- and silversmiths art in the whole of Catalonia.
