The Museu de la Mar de l’Ebre values the natural and cultural heritage of a coast heavily conditioned by the presence of the Ebre estuary. The nature, the history and the etnology show us the biological wealth and the way humans have taken advantge of it with different kinds of fishing grounds, as well as the geostrategic significance of this coast for navigation and the resulting need to defend and populate it. This museum, along with the Museu de les Terres de l'Ebre, represents a complete summary of the rich, assorted and singular natural and cultural reality of this territory.
The museum is set up at the old neoclassic building that accomodated the "Real Compañía de Canalización del Ebro", commonly known as "les Casotes" and next to the first dam of the navigation canal from the Alfacs to Amposta. From here it's possible to initiate urban routes to get to know the history, the culture and the heritage of la Ràpita, as well as routes through the Delta de l'Ebre and the Alfac's bay.

One of the most interesting but less studied places of the Serra del Montsià, from which some answers could be gotten. It's a group of stones of considerable size, distributed forming a circle of 140 metres of diameter. The construction of these monuments is placed at the recent bronze age prehistoric period, but the oldest are from the Neolithic period, almost 10.000 years old. It is believed that this kind of structures, also known as cromlech, were funerary monuments that could also be used as temples. The most famous one is Stonehenge, in England. It is also said that the one in the Serra del Montsià could have been designed to be used as a solar observatory.
