    The medieval village was built over the ruins of an ancient roman villa. The village is surrounded by worked lands, specially with dry land cultivations. The farming activity has always been the economic source of the village. Many centuries ago they farmed vine, almond trees, olive trees and locust trees.

   Nowadays the industrial sector is also getting strength in Alió, with the setting up of different businesses and with the construction of the industrial estate. Alió-Bràfim, with 141.000 m2 of industrial ground.

   The ancient nucleus of Alió is located near the church. The oldest streets are plain and bright, with a simple construction following the traditional architecture. The entrance halls and the irregularities that border this nucleus suggest us an ancient structure of a medieval village.

   The XVIII century was a period of growth in most of the area villages, as it is reflected in the construction of houses and churches.

   The vast production of wine in the region incites to the creation of many liquor factories.
