Aldover

Province: Tarragona | Shire: Baix Ebre | Inhabitants: 838 | Extension: 20,2 Km2 | Altitude: 14 m

Aldover belongs to the Baix Ebre region. It extends between the top of the Penyaflor and the right bank of the Ebro with a narrow strip that extends from the dry to the irrigated. It is located between Xerta, Alfara de Carles and Tortosa.

The archaeological remains found tell us about a habitat tradition since prehistoric times. Thus, the deposits of the Lobo Valley and the Cuenca, where flint tips have been found, must be added the Iberian settlement of Tossal and Valleta.

The place was populated already in times of the Muslim occupation. It is believed that the name comes from the Arabic term "aldowayra" which means "booth". In 1154 it was ceded to Tortosa by Count Ramon Berenguer IV.

The parochial church, of neogothic style, is under the invocation of Sant Jordi and of the Nativity of the Virgin Maria. It consists of three naves with apse.
