For over a hundred years now, in the Ebro Delta, there are a series of traditions that are going from parents to children, so in this section, we offer activities, workshops and parties, these.
The punting boats activity is probably one of those that the visitors love the most, due to it allow you to feel like our ancestors, which they used these boats to navigate by the shallow waters of Delta. You can take the punt by the "Lo Mas de la Cuixota" canals, driving it yourself, enjoying the flora and fauna of Delta.
Rice and everything that involves the cultivation of this cereal is definitely the most valuable legacy that has been left to us.
This activity, composed for a first theoretical part, and followed by another one practical, will allow to the visitor to understand all the hard work there are behind this incredible cereal.
Probably we are talking about the most experimental activity that someone can do in the Delta, get into a paddy, feel the water, the ground, the nature, just unique.
Jose Luis Garcia, owner of l’Estany la Casa de Fusta restaurant and the Lo Mas de la Cuixota, has had an extreme important role to the preservation of the traditions of the Delta. That’s why the last 20 years, he has been celebrating in Lo Mas de la Cuixota the “Festa de la Plantada” (planting festival), and the “Festa de la Cega” (harvest festival), where you can see how our ancestors worked all with their own hands, and just with the help of horses.
