Planning my third camino but I can’t find a great deal of information in english.
Has anyone walked the Camino Jacobeo del Ebro from Deltebre to Logrono?
What are the facilities like?
Is there a guide book in English?

Absolutely any information would be most welcome 👣😀

I walked up the Ebro from Deltebre to Gallur in 2015. I liked it very much indeed, and hope to do the Logroño to Tudela section this autumn.

It's a mostly very well marked camino and it mostly follows the GR99, so it's pretty difficult to get lost. There are several excellent albergues along the way (Tortosa, Gandesa, Batea, Torres de Berrellén, Gallur), some lovely countryside and some interesting towns, and delicious wines. It is a very solitary camino, which I like but is not for everybody. One of my relations was killed fighting with the British battalion of the Quinta/Quince Brigada at the Ebro, which made it even more special for me.

@peregrina2000 and some others have left descriptions of the route here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/forums/ruta-del-ebro.107/

Hope you enjoy it (the pic is of a sculpture by Tàpies on the section just before Gandesa):

Hi, Pipmahoe,

I’ve moved your post to the Ebro sub-forum. You should scroll through there to see the info posted by those of us who walked it.
(I see there are only 25 posts, but I think there’s a lot of info there).

Like Alan, I turned off the Ebro after Zaragoza and followed the absolutely wonderful Castellano-Aragonés. I have a blog (link is in my signature below this post), and you will see the threads we posted with our stages in the subforum.

Our little core of Ebro alumni will be happy to help! Buen camino, Laurie

Dear Alan,
Thank you so much for your reply. Is there a memorial for the battle your relative fought in? I absolutely love your photo, I think you took it at a fantastic angle! I will certainly use your link to read all the other pilgrims descriptions of their experiences. 👣😀

Dear Laurie,

Thank you so much for putting my post in the correct place, I ‘m still getting used to the forum, it took me ages to work out how to do a post in the first place!

I have been enjoying your blogs, its been my bed time reading for a few nights now 😂👣

There is a great little museum in Gandesa (where there is a pilgrim albergue also) focused on the Battle of the Ebro. http://www.usuaris.tinet.org/cebe/angles/indexing.htm Alan’s relative was killed during that long battle. A lot of International Brigade soldiers fought and died there, and I remember being particularly moved by a glass case filled with belt buckles found on the battle field, taken no doubt from the bodies of dead soldiers. Many were obviously from the U.S. Row after row of metal buckles, it really hit me.
