I stop often to look at the life that thrills around, seeweeds, birds, carps:

Still water
I've been lucky. Gorgeus day, no wind, I slip downstream effortless while I'm listening to some music.

If you've never been in Miravet, may I suggest spending there some hours, visiting the village and the Castle (guided tours on sunday, check schedule at 977 40 73 68).
Miravet was an strategic site for controlling the river. Muslims resisted until 1152 when Berenguer IV conquered it after a long siege and gave it to the templars. It was this monk-soldier order that transformed the fortress into the form that we can see today, a castle-convent, one of the best romanic religious-military buildings in europe. When templars were persecuted the castle was under siege again, it was won and given to another religious order. By 1835 as result from a law that expropiated lands and buildings from religious orders its property and use became private.
