Camí de Sant Jaume a l'Ebre, etapa 1: Desembocadura - Poble Nou del Delta
The trail starts at the Ebro estuary, on the Muntell de les Verges in the town of Deltebre. Here you can see images of all the patron saints of each autonomous community that the river passes: Verge de la Cinta (Catalonia), La Pilarica (Aragon), Santa Ana de Tudela (Navarra) and La Valvanera (Rioja), although all are in disrepair. There is also an information panel. This is the highest point of the whole Delta. The route goes past Deltebre’s new river port and the jetty for the “Golandrinas” [motor boats], where we turn right along a trail that takes us to the Ebro’s left canal.
The route follows it until arriving at a large roundabout at the entrance of the town of Deltebre. Here, we turn left and continue until the river walk, where we turn right until meeting a new bridge, Lo Passador, that connects the two banks of the river and takes us to Sant Jaume d’Enveja. We continue straight ahead along Carrer Major, passing the cemetery, before arriving at the road that goes down to Amposta (TV-3405), where we turn right. After some 1,500 m, we turn left to head straight towards El Poble Nou, where we arrive alongside the Encanyissada lagoon. This path is signposted with cylindrical posts measuring 1.2 m in height and that are bevelled on the top and hold a plaque indicating the path. There are also yellow arrows.
