FLIX - LOCAL ATTRACTIONS.
The Meander on the River Ebro
Flix is situated on a meander which has good riverside walks with continuous footpaths. There is a nearby viewing point overlooking the meander with parking and
benches which is a very popular destination for tourists.
The Ferry Barge
A unique way to start the meander walk is to take the free ferry across the river to where the footpath begins.
The castle is set on a hill and dominates the surrounding landscape. There is a road from the town leading up to it. The views from here are spectacular.
A short distance from Flix is the Ermita. This is a hermitage which is built over a Roman temple and is still occupied. A candle always burns.
Set into the natural rock, this is definitely worth a visit.
OUT AND ABOUT
It is nearly essential to have your own transport, unless you are prepared to walk a lot and rely on public transport. There are buses and trains from Flix,
but these are infrequent.
This is a marvellous region for exploring. The scenery is breathtaking whichever route you take and the roads are in general quiet and good and well signposted.
There are numerous towns and villages dotted about, from the mountains to the coast, where you can explore churches and ermitas (hermitages), browse around markets,
wander around museums, or stroll along a Mediterranean promenade. There is a wide range of flora and fauna to be spotted wherever you go.
There are bars and restaurants everywhere where you can relax with just a drink or sample a wide range of local cuisine - from Tapas to Menu del Dia, or choose from
the menu. Menu del Dia (Meal of the day) is served both in the afternoon and evening and is great value for money. A word of warning - do have a phrasebook
or dictionary handy as menus are never in English, and the staff, though always helpful, are usually not able to translate.
This is just a brief introduction to the area and we will be happy to inform and advise in more detail, within our knowledge.
Whatever your preference, you will enjoy the laid back atmosphere and the tranquility of the region.
In August, the towns and villages become alive with local fiestas. Each town has its own fiesta at different times throughout the month. These often last several
days and can include religious processions, carnival parades, dining, dancing, music, and firework displays. The celebrations often continue well into the early hours.
There is something for everyone with activities for children during the day. There are also other fiestas during the year.
Most towns have an outdoor market during the week. In Flix there are two; Tuesdays and Thursdays. The markets sell everything from clothes to fruit and vegetables.
In Mora La Nova, they even sell chickens and goats! They are on different days so you could go to them all if you want.
