If you want to enjoy the Matarraña and Ebro rivers, guided excursions with llaüt are offered every Sunday between June and September (variable season) with departures at 11 am from the jetty of La Reixaga and also from PortMassaluca Camping.
¿What is llaüt?
The llaüt was a wooden boat typical from the lower part of the Ebro river that was used to transport goods. The history of Fayón is closely linked to this type of ships, which served to carry the coal that was extracted from the mines located between this municipality and Mequinenza moving them to the train station of Fayón and also to the end part of the Ebro river, near Tortosa and Amposta.
Those vessels were operated by sail or rowing and could load up to 40 tons. They sailed down the river loaded with coal and, they use to return bringing products from the lower part of the river, such as rice. The way back used to be more laborious, since the current was against them. If the wind did not blow in favor, the so-called "tow roads" were used, which were roads built on the sides of the river where people or animals (donkeys, mules, bulls or draft horses) pulled the boat through a rope.
One of the famous llaüts of the area was recovered in Fayón: the Cardinal. Anyway, in order to offer the llaüt tours sailing on the same areas, there are two new motor boats.
