We found a leaflet which was inviting us to explore the "Coves Meravelles" so we had a drive over to Benifallet to discover they were not so marvellous as they were closed and we were really dissapointed , seemingly they date back to the neolithc period. Well had the caves been open we probably would have missed this wonderful place called Tortosa. But if any one has any pictures of the caves I would love to see them.
Tortosa suffered badly during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), when the River Ebro formed the front line between the opposing forces, the town eventually fell to the Nationalist forces in April 1938 after a bloody battle which cost some 35,000 lives.
So I was really pleased to have missed the marvelous caves.
The next few days were filled with going to various markets,walking visiting the ports eating and drinking (would be rude not to) really.
