Sant Jaume d'Enveja
Altitude: 7 m
Sant Jaume d'Enveja extends along the banks of the Ebro River. Whether you arrive from Amposta or from the Lo Passador bridge, Calle Major crosses it from part to part. Today, this road is the main axis of the population, where most shops and restaurants meet.
Sant Jaume has about 3,500 inhabitants, among its most outstanding buildings we find Lo Xalet, in the middle of the town; and other constructions of traditional architecture that conserve some of the rural elements well linked to the land such as wells, cisterns and wood ovens.
Much of the municipality is touching the river, which has a privileged place of recreation on the Riverwalk.
In Sant Jaume there is an active cultural and social life with sports entities and others such as Tempo Teatre, which have a history of more than thirty years of existence behind them.
The holidays are also an important part of the town. In July, for Sant Jaume, the main festival, but there are many more, the Segregation, the Planted, Somriu...
Sant Jaume has a pleasant temperature at any time of the year. In winter, the mistral blows with force and leaves clear, clear skies and a light that allows to see how the Montsià mountains appear inland. In spring, with all the surroundings denied of water, the landscape becomes unreal, full of mirages and reflections; in summer, rice goes from green to golden and in autumn it is the time of harvest, a time when the fields are buzzing with activity and commemorated with another party that must be taken into account, the Feast of the Sega.
