La Pobla de Massaluca
The northern border of La Pobla de Massaluca is marked by the river Matarranya, affected by the end of the Riba-roja reservoir. Here is the only river harbor in the Terra Alta, connected with the river Ebro, where you can do all kinds of water activities. The town is in an area with a privileged view of the different crops: vineyards, almond trees and olive trees. It also conserves various porches and some buildings that are noted for the architectural elements that remain..
