VIA VERDA DE LA TERRA ALTA
The Green Way is a touristic, cultural and sports proposal which follows part of the route of the old railway, now asphalted, that joined the towns of Tortosa and Puebla de Hijar. The itinerary crosses the Pàndols and Cavalls mountains, an area with spots of pristine beauty where one can enjoy peace and silence in the midst of Nature. It leads through areas that show a surprising diversity of landscapes, where rural settings devoted primarily to dry farming alternate with mountainous wooded areas marked by the abrupt shapes of sheer rock walls, canyons, gorges, narrow passages and small dams formed by the river Canaletes. In addition to natural beauty, of interest here are the historical and artistic features that line the path, together with the beauty of the towns, which in many cases preserve a certain medieval character. The stretch that has been recovered, extending 23.6 kilometres, passes through the old railway stations of Arnes-Lledó and Tortosa, and crosses the districts of Arnes, Horta de Sant Joan, Bot, Prat de Comte and El Pinell de Brai. It may be followed on foot, on any type of bicycle or on horseback, and it is also suitable for persons who use a wheelchair. The whole path is conditioned with benches, litter-bins and gardened stretches, and there are two springs with drinking water.
