Navigation

The Ebro has been one of the most important communication ways in the Iberian Peninsula. Iberians, Phoenicians, Romans, Muslims and Christians, later on, used the Ebro as a communication hub. During the middle ages the fluvial economy was forged in the Ebro and there were more and more llaüters and other trades related with fluvial navigation. The activity, which only ceased in the most exceptional cases like floods or wars, increased slowly until the beginning of the 19th century. Then, navigation on the Ebro started diminishing until its disappearance with the arrival of the railway, the roads and the building of the dams of Mequinensa, Riba-roja and Flix.

Nowadays, navigation has been recovered for tourism and leisure.

In Ascó, you can navigate with engineless vessels like canoes and kayaks (single or double) or with small engine boats rented by different specialised businesses.

You can also sail the Ebro by means of a modern replica of the llaüt (the typical vessel of the Catalan Ebro with its origins in the Muslim period) named “Lo Roget” after an ancient Moor bandit who avoided his expulsion in 1609. There are tourist trips between Ascó and Miravet during the periods where fluvial navigation is allowed. www.llautloroget.com
