What will we explain to you?
During the trip, the guide will explain the history of the “llaguts”, traditional boats that crossed the Ebro to hundreds until the mid-twentieth century manned by “the sirgadors” and helped by the “Way of Sirga”.
You will also know the history of Tortosa, a bi-millenary city, and the importance of river transport in its economic splendor.
The various historical buildings visible from the river will serve as a link for the narration. Different anecdotes will help us to make this tourist cruise more enjoyable and fun.
