The following is the opening speech of the Renaissance Festival by Mayor of Tortosa, Ferran Bel:   Our city already looks like it did five hundred years ago. The costumes, the streets, the colors and smells of the sixteenth century have taken Tortosa and have transformed into a party. During four intense days from today until Sunday, the city presents an image that dazzles you have not seen the never the same and that continues to surprise Tortosa. Market period, nearly 200 stations, five camps to set the city and bring us closer to the everyday life of the moment, eleven taverns on the route of the shad, restaurants with recipes created specifically to evoke the meals of the sixteenth century, or the hundreds people today, like last year and others have been re-dress period, ...
