Ebre Connect Summer 2016 - Page 3

Welcome! Benvinguts! Ebre Connect is for all English-speaking residents and tourists in and around L’Ametlla, L’Ampolla and El Perelló This is the first ever issue of Ebre Connect. For the past year we have existed online as a successful website bringing news and information to English-speakers in this area. This magazine complements the website and in it we focus on what this area has to offer during the summer season. We’ve got recommendations for great places to go for all of the family (check out 10-year-old Alex’s favourite outings on page 14), as well as our readers’ opinions on the finest local beaches. On pages 8 and 9, there’s a list of some of the best events that take place during July, August and September. These are genuinely important occasions for the Catalan people, so come along and experience the traditional culture of this area. L’Ametlla, L’Ampolla and El Perelló are all proud of their gastronomic heritage and you can enjoy local seafood, rice dishes and much more at the many bars and restaurants in each town. On page 7 we take a closer look at one of the area’s most famous exports, El Perelló’s honey. You’ll also notice our lovely advertisements. This publication would not be possible without the support of local businesses and we are immensely grateful for their confidence in us. They’re a select group of companies, so take a look at what they’ve got to offer – we hope you’ll find something useful. This magazine is only a snapshot of Ebre Connect. You can find us online at www.EbreConnect.cat, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter as @EbreConnect. Have a fantastic summer!
