In this short paper we define the diagnosis and the design criteria for the territorial transformation of the Delta of Ebro (Catalonia, Spain). The location of Tortosa, the powerful regional capital, as a hinge between the river Ebro and its delta, define the historical significance of the territorial model of Ebro´s basin. This historical and political inertia raised its top due to the emerging conurbations and its resistant and insurgent stakeholders, confirming one of the main reasons of the territorial disfunction of the current model. The relative spontaneous and diffuse urban structure, set of linked cities, depend on their access to the Mediterranean highway (A2). The aim of the project is to increase the accessibility and connectivity, relating existing and new infrastructures. We propose a model based on the form of the territory and the existing urban heritage of the mature cities.
