14 d’abril de 2012. Corbera d’Ebre. A la batalla de l’Ebre (del 25 de juliol al 17 de novembre de 1938), les parets de les cases quedaren foradades per les bales i clivellades per la metralla. Gairebé tot el poble va ser enderrocat per les bombes. Ara al tossal de la Muntera només hi ha les runes cada cop més degradades del poble antic, entre les quals destaca poderosament l’església vella de Sant Pere (gran edifici barroc de finals del segle XVIII), malmesa però emblemàtica.
Spanish Civil War. In Corbera d’Ebre one can understand how much the people of the Terra Alta region suffered during the war which was the worst disaster in its history. The former district of a peaceful people like all those of the region situated above the Muntera tower from which could be seen the movement of work in the fields, clusters of neighbours along the roads, the housewives who came and went from the fountain, the market or the wash house or sound of the groups of children playing.
However when war broke out and the Battle of the Ebro (from July 25th to 17th of November 1938) the town remained very close to the border. The walls of the houses were peppered with machine gun fire. Almost all of the town was destroyed by bombs.
After the war, for a variety of reasons families moved to the lower part on both sides until a new town was built.
Now only the hillock of Muntera remains where the ruins, ever more eroded, remain. This is where the old Church of Sant Pere (a big baroque building dating from the end of the 18th century) is situated which, although damaged, remains nonetheless emblematic.
