Tortosa to Horta greenway


Highly recommended to cycling magnets. A bike path runs through many tunnels that are generally dark, so you had to carry a flashlight or headlight to see. In Spain there are over 1900 km of disused railway infrastructure. It was converted into numerous biking and hiking in the Greenways Program, coordinated by the Spanish Foundation of Railways.


The starting point can be choosen according to our physical form. We can start from Horta de Sant Joan, Xerta or the old station of Benifallet. It is in the middle of the itinerary. Allow 2 hours for up to 15 km from Benifallet to Horta de Sant Joan, to go, and less than 1 hour to come back. Horta de Sant Joan is the most emblematic population. Here Pablo Picasso spent some time that inspired him. It is worth to visit the medieval city center and the arcades of the Plaza de la Iglesia. Bot is another possible starting point. It is remarkable for its vineyards and cuisine.
