At the end of the gardens, going back about 200 meters and rising, reaching the advanced San Juan. These are the remains of an ancient fortification, visited the magnitude which gives us the measure of importance that had the city of Tortosa in past centuries as the crossroads between Catalonia, Aragon and Valencia.

Suda Castle

Tortosa Cathedral and Cathedral Museum

The Cathedral of Tortosa is building that perhaps best reflects the passage of time and the traces left in this city. His heritage makes his visit inexcusable. The demolition of the block that prevented to see its facade and admire its magnitude, has been a great boost in recent times. A great success undoubtedly the council Tortosa.

Indeed, in this space, excavations are being given the number and importance of the remains found.
