Summary

Introduction

 

The Olympic Rowing Centre in Amposta became DTE (Sporting Tourist Destination) approved in 2012 because of its first class training facilities, both on and off the water. Even before receiving this award, many International and National teams came to Amposta for their rowing training camps.

The training facility benefits from having accommodation geared specifically for training athletes and very close to the heart of Amposta's city centre with its many cafes, restaurants and attractions.

Amposta is about 180km south of Barcelona and is recognised as the gateway to the Ebro Delta Nature Park, considered to be one of the most important wetlands on the Mediterranean.
