Additional Location Information
From "beginning of time” there has been olives grown here. Our plantation 38.000 m2 is preserved biological and has 400 olive trees mainly several hundred of years old about 100 carob trees and many other fruit-, nut-, and spices- trees and bushes.
A single olive tree near the house is preserved through the ages as a shaded pavilion and more than 700 old / 45 meters in circumference.
Have a walk in the small but deep valley of the plantation - which has grown wildly – and you will see rosemary, thyme, St. John's wort, asparagus figs, grapes, carob, laurent- almond-, and walnuts-trees and a tomb. The area is visited from time to time by wild boars and a Golden Eagle family of 3 eagles. When the hottest often a refreshing breeze from the mountains!
The area has its own "micro climate" and is one of Spain's most dry and sunny.
The area and Tortosa are mentioned in the history. "Hannibal" gathered his troops here before the invention of Rome.
Ebro Delta has a large production of rice and, together with the Mediterranean gives the air humidity.Here also is a large Natural Park with among others Flamingo’s and very rich fishing from the beach.The Ebro river has a famous cat fishing and excursion possible by vessel. The city of Tortosa writes its history back to the time of Christ. A huge fort, the old town and the cathedral is worth a visit. Many good shops and a lively arts scene.
