Linden and Tim: A few of our favourite things
1. Wise worship
A church with a bar – what more can you ask for? Mig Cami, or halfway in Catalan, is, funnily enough, halfway up the hill from Tortosa towards Coll d’Alba. It is one of the best spots in Tortosa for sunset (pictured top) and a great excuse for a walk. The stroll will take you 30 minutes from the centre of town, but only the last bit is really strenuous, and you pass many grand old country houses on the way.
2. Go Green
The section of the Via Verde bicycle track from Horta De Sant Joan to Tortosa (the Baix Ebre stretch) is a lazy cyclist’s dream. A converted railway track, the wide path runs gently downhill through tunnels, over bridges and among the gorgeous Els Ports nature park. There are several companies that can pick up you and your bike from Tortosa, so you don’t even have to pedal uphill to get there.
Forn de la Canonja is a “gastronomic space” that houses a cafe, a burger grill, a restaurant, and a bar stocked with local craft beers. The taps are always changing, and there are regular DJs, bands and events, all within a restored collection of buildings in Tortosa’s old town. A Friday night favourite!
