The crossing boat
The best way to discover Miravet is by crossing the Ebro river through the last non-motorized boat pass, from the C12, by vehicle.
It is the direct entrance to the Plaza del Arenal and the side parking lot, where you can leave the car and begin the itinerary on foot to the castle.
* Check the service timetables.
The panoramic view
Cerca del parquing está el embarcadero, desde donde podrá admirar las vistas del conjunto histórico: el Cap de la Vila, el castillo y el paisaje fluvial de Miravet. Desde aquí pintó Joaquim Mir su famoso cuadro Fantasía del Ebro I y II, entre otros.
The tourism office
Although it is not always open (due to lack of budget), go to the tourist office to find out about schedules, cultural events, restrictions, go to the bathroom or, if it is closed, consult the map of the town outside.
Arranged guided tours depart from the tourist office.
Discover the Old Town (Cap de la Vila)
From Plaça del Arenal, where you will find bars to have a drink, you will start the itinerary on foot to the castle passing through the old town of Cap de la Vila, enjoying the views of the river and the monuments and corners of the historic center of Miravet: the Medieval shipyard, the Motxo portal, the Riago Coast, the walls, the mill, the commander's palace (Palau), the flood marks, the Battle of the Ebro devastated area, etc.
Visit the arte center Joaquim Mir
Visit the Joaquim Mir art center, in the Palau de Miravet (+34656266398). This house-monument, former palace of the commander (15th century) is our most unique accommodation.
Joaquim Mir was the great Catalan impressionist painter, our Claude Monet, and he dedicated part of his work to Miravet.
The Old Church
In the middle of Cap de la Vila we find the arch of the medieval Aljama and the Renaissance Old Church, with the Sanqueta viewpoint over the river and in front of it the Tamarigar meander (nature reserve).
You can arrange the guided tour at +34 691561868 (Vicens Ayan).
The Battle of the Ebro (1938)
Through the streets of La Paja, Banco, Ferreries and del Castell we can see the area devastated as a result of the Battle of the Ebro. Abandoned lots with the ruins of the houses that occupied them.
The International Brigades participated in the Battle of the Ebro, fighting against Fascism.
Miravet, like Corbera d'Ebre or Belchite, are the only towns where the passage of the Spanish Civil War is still evident.
The Templar Castle
Walking up Calle del Castell to the imposing castle (10 min), passing in front of El Balcón de Miravet and enjoying the views. A path that in another time traveled knights, servants and pilgrims, armed soldiers, cannons and rifles...
This path is one of the paths of La Cameta Coixa.
Restaurants to eat and the Agrobotiga
De vuelta al pueblo puede tomar algo en las terrazas de los bares, comprar los productos locales en la agrotienda de Miravet y comer en el restaurante Molí de Xim o cualquiera de los bares.
No olvide probar los pastissets y los vinos y aceites de Miravet.
The pottery workshops
Sleeping in Miravet, the best option!
The Palau and the Ebro River are an inseparable binomial. The guest house is the Joaquim Mir art center and guest house. Art and history coexist with water and landscape. A place of peace, calm and tranquility.
El Balcón is our house, with privileged views, where we live Joaquim Marsal (painter and sculptor) and Aurelio Monge (yours truly, photographer). Both lovers of classical music, art and history, our garden and hospitality.
