Historical and commercial center. Tortosa is located on the Ebro at 12 meters above the sea level. It was under the Moors rule for several centuries. For many years it was the border line. It was finally conquered by the Count Raymond Berenger IV of Barcelona in 1148. Legend tells that the men had gone to work in the fields, and it was only women of Tortosa, armed with simple axes, who defended the city. Remembering this, every woman born in Tortosa has the right to display an ax carried right on the back of his garment.
