Els Ports, an exceptional complex of limestone relief, steep and split up by faults with gigantic imposed blocks rising to heights over 1,000m with a wealth of spectacular cliffs and gorges gouged out by the rivers Matarranya and Ulldemó, caves and potholes.  The area is rich in flora with over 1,000 varieties and fauna such as the wild mountain goat, wildcat, otter and birds of prey such as the vulture, golden eagle and the buzzard.

Montsant, Cliffs and gorges create a dramatic landscape and a variety of terrain with striking views. This mountain range is situated in the neighbouring county of Priorat and has several visitor information points all with a 20 – 50 minute drive away.

Cardó, Pandňls & Cavalls Moutains, the slopes of these steep mountains provided a refuge for the soldiers throughout the Spanish civil war (1936 – 1939) and were the scene of the fiercest fighting. In memory of the battle an itinerary that follows the most significant points has been laid out. One of the main landmarks is located in the Pandóls mountain, named “Punta Alta” (High Point) with a splendid panoramic view, where you can see the monument of peace in honour of everyone who fought in the Battle of the Ebro.

The Green Way (“La Via Verda”); Greenways are the result of converting disused railway lines into cycling and walking routes. Easy, accessible, far removed from motorised traffic and with hardly any steep slopes, they are specially recommended for nature lovers and people who enjoy outdoor exercise. Miravet is located in a priveliged position for the Greenway route of Tarragona running through the counties of Terra Alta and Baix Ebre the routes are accessible from the neighbouring village of Pinell de Brai, only 15 minutes drive away by car. At this point you can either take the route through Terra Alta (23 km) or the lower route through Baix Abre finishing in Tortosa (26 km).

There are also numerous other trekking routes which start from local villages (Miravet, Tivissa, Benifallet etc) taking you past the river, historical monuments and beautiful forest areas.
