Route of Batalla de l’Ebre

The Route of Batalla de l’Ebre

El Faió

July 17th

This remote village has much to offer. The road from Gandesa to Faio has many interesting land marks for the Battle de Ebre. 

There is a large museum here dedicated to the war. Once a year, just outside of the village, down by the river,  a reenactment takes place to represent  the Republicans crossing of the Ebre. Many of the people who take part in this event to represent members of the International Brigade, have themselves travelled from all over Europe and the USA, to join natives of both sides to create the scenes to represent the conflict that took place in this area.

Gandesa, Serra de Cavalls i Pàndols

A day of relaxation. Today you will visit the town of Gandesa. Here you will find the CEBE Memorial Museum on the main high street in the old school house. This Museum has many fine exhibits on show. There is so much to tell.

From Gandesa you can take a short car journey to the Memorial at the top of Hill 705. The Monument here is dedicated to all that were killed in the conflict. There are plaques dedicated to some of the International Brigadiers that lost their lives. The panoramic view from the top is amazing. From here you can investigate Hill 666 if you wish to be more adventurous.

From Hill 705, you head on down to The Sanctuary of La Fontcalda. Here you can relax in the fresh waters of the Canaleta river and the warm water of the small natural spring. The sheer limestone rock faces line the small river as it winds itself down to the Ebre. Enjoy a meal in the restaurant whilst you take in the beauty of the Natural Park, you might even be lucky to see an Ibex.

La Fatarella, Camposines i Flix

x de juny

Flix in Arabic means river meander. At this point the river twists and turns and forms a small peninsular. Flix sits on this small peninsular and is therefore very strategic.

The Republican 3rd Division had nearly completed an Iron Bridge across the river when the Nationalists forces attacked. The International Brigades were involved in the battle. The Republican forces lost more than 3000 men during this action and failed to hold onto the new bridge.

 The reenactment here portrays the Republican retreat across the river by the old ferry. Joining them were many civilian refugees. Within this reenactment,  there is an exhibition of how a field hospital would of been operated.
