Shire: Ribera d'Ebre
Altitude: 70 m
Ascó is located in a strategic location in the Catalan Ebro, it rises just side of the river and in the middle of a large river plain closed by two or narrow passages, the Paso del Asno and the Paso del Lobo de Andisc. The strategic location of Ascó led to the use of different prehistoric towns such as Iberians and Romans, but it was not until medieval and modern times when Ascó takes a leading role, first with Muslim occupation and later with Templar employment and Catalan accounts.
The cultural treasure symbolizes the passage and coexistence of different cultures that have left a very rich heritage and cultural legacy and that today is part of our traditions and customs as a people.
