The Ebre region is located in the south of Catalonia. It is a region of high ecological value and a strong cultural identity, brought by the traditions, history, folklore and gastronomy of its inhabitants. It covers four counties with some of the most unique landscapes of Catalonia's countryside. The Ebre River - the longest flowing river of the Iberian Peninsula - shapes this unique area, which has been declared a Biosphere Reserve. The northern coast of the Ebre Region is characterised by deserted coves surrounded by pine trees and cliffs. The beaches of the south are spacious and quiet, with fine sand and shallow, crystal-clear waters.
