SANT JAUME'S CHURCH.jpg (67498 bytes)

   The term is formed by a group of hills next to the Francolí river and to the Garidells bank. The village is located in one of the most elevated hills. This place offers a vast view.

   It is a classic and Mediterranean landscape, with soft ripples, marked by different ways and villages, and the blue background of the mountain range.

   The watered lands next to the Francolí river allow the cultivation of hazels, cereals, fruit trees and poultry farming. The ones unirrigated show a lot of variety: olive trees, almond trees, hazels and vines.

   These farming's contrast with the intense green spots of the forests and the thickets extended all around the term.
