This place is not easy to get to it. The walk all the way up there in hot sun will add to the disappointment.
This place is just ruins and everything is dusty and dirty. Empty cans, bottles, paper, even dog excrements...
Municipality should spend some funds and resources to clean the place.
It has a great history, it part of its heritage, mind as well clean it and preserve it.

No touristic info of any kind, not even a sign at the bottom of the stairs and ramps going p to the ruins, nothing. You need to know how to get there. What is the reason this is on the local maps as an attraction if is not maintained and presented properly?

Save your breath, don’t go. See my pictures, I will load the best looking ones, it is the best you can do.

Les Fortifications is a group of walls and buildings located in the surroundings of Tortosa, where you can see the remains of the old fortifications. It is a very nice place to walk and see very beautiful views of the city and surroundings. In fact, it is located near Suda Castle, which nowadays is a hotel. Pitifully, the fortifications are a bit degradated, this part need an urgent renovation.

Avanzadas de San Juan is the fortress place, which surrounds a part of Tortosa, a city in the South of Spain. It is a very beautiful place, where you can walk and see very beautiful views of the city and surroundings. Pitifully, the place is not well-preserved and it needs a hard restoration. I hope in the future it will be better! Then I am sure that a lot of people come here to walk, do picnics or play with children.

It took a lot of steps to reach the fortifications. A very large ramp has been built for wheelchair access, but once at the top, it seems unlikely that someone in a wheelchair could get very far as the ground is uneven and rocky. The fortifications are not in good condition, but are interesting to view as they provide an understanding of the sieges that took place in Tortosa on several occasions.

The correct name for this historic site is the Fortifications of Sant Joan. This site was the centre for the defence of the city of Tortosa on several occasions in the 17th century. It now is largely in ruins.
