Complementary Information:Terra Alta is a rural area of Cataluña dotted with almond and pine groves through which a few trains used to run up until 1973. Now we can make use of the disused rail bed of this forgotten railway to travel through the spectacular countryside around the Sierra de Pandols ridge and the Beceite heights. A journey through tunnels and over viaducts takes us from Aragon to the Ebro.
