The Mare de Déu de l’Aldea chapel: a twelfth-century chapel.
The old Roman milestone found at the chapel dates back to the time of Emperor Claudius (AD 43-44).
Watchtowers: There are four old stone-built watchtowers in l’Aldea: the eighteenth-century tower beside the twelfth-century Mare de Deu chapel; the sixteenth-century Candela tower; the privately-owned Burjassénia tower, first documented in the twelfth-century, located beside the old Burjassénia elm tree – classified as a ‘monumental tree’; and the Benaixarop (or Vinaixarop) tower from the thirteenth century.
The River Ebro: The river and its surroundings are the star features of any touristic route. The final stretch of the Ebro flows between Amposta and l’Aldea and irrigates the fields of crops via the canal of fresh water running parallel to the river. Other canals and channels form a network to distribute water to nearby fields or to drain the rice fields when necessary. There is a boat landing on the left bank of the river.
