Gandesa

Gandesa is the capital of the region where, despite its industrial and commercial growth, it has conserved its artistic and historic heritage. Its natural surroundings are rugged, where we find the mountain ranges of Pàndols and Cavalls. The river Canaletes collects a large part of the water from the municipal area, lapping the landscape. Although the old town centre was greatly damaged during the sieges of the Carlist Wars, it still conserves a large number of architectural elements..

Walking around the town.

Walking around the old town centre you can see the porches of the Church Square, the Gothic-style windows’ of the old "Casa de la Vila" (Town House), the old prison and some stately homes. The Roman’ Archpriest Church’ of Assumpció, Romanesque style, was declared an historic-artistic monument in 1980. The Cooperative Wine Cellar is a modernist building built in 1919. It was designed by the architect César Martinell, a disciple of Gaudí. It highlights the location of water tanks’ on a roof, and inside, the parabolic arches. It was declared an Asset of National Cultural Interest on 30 th July 2002. The town houses the centre for studies of the Battle of the Ebro, a historic museum of the Spanish Civil War. Walking around the town you can discover secret places and ancient and noble houses from the past of the town, Cal Barons de Puroi, Ca l’Inquisidor i Cal Pardo, among others.

The Gandesa area also has the Archaeological Site of Coll del Moro, comprising an Iberian village and necropolis (8th BC to 1st BC centuries)
