Miravet is located in the south of the county of Ribera
d’Ebre (known as “The land of the sweet fruits”), crowned by the
imposing cliff-top castle of Miravet with spectacular views of the river
and the surrounding landscape. The castle was built by Moorish
rule and was conquered in 1153 by the Templars and is regarded
as one of the finest examples of Medieval Catalan military
architecture in the western world. You can visit the castle by
either taking the walking route up or driving up.
There are more
architectural treasures in the old quarter of the village
including the old church dating from the Renaissance era and
unique in its style throughout the area.
old quarter offers wonderful scenic views across the river.
Clay pottery, a traditional handicraft conserved in Miravet and some surrounding towns and villages, is located in the still functioning 8 workshops, which are located together in the “Raval” quarter where Els Canterers is located. The craftsmen can be found making pieces by hand and still using the potter’s wheel; with shapes and glazes introduced from the Islamic world, such as pitchers and jars. The village has also preserved the original car ferry crossing which uses only the currents of the river to cross the banks – this is the only one of its kind to have been preserved and still working today in the region.
