Balada is a small village located in the Ebro Delta just opposite the island of Gracia, next to the river Ebro. It belongs to the municipalities of Amposta and Sant Jaume, as it is located on the border between the two municipalities, between the right bank of the Ebro and the channel on the right. This small town has a main street and no service.

It emphasizes the presence of an oleander of great dimensions, the Baladre de Balada, a bush that has turned into the emblem of this small locality. Due to its extraordinary dimensions, this oleander has been catalogued as a Monumental Tree.
