L'Albiol is a municipality in the Baix Camp region. It is bordered to the northeast by Alcover, to the north by Mont-ral, to the west by Vilaplana, to the southwest by L'Aleixar and to the south by La Selva del Camp.

The municipality of L'Albiol is located on an elevation of about 900 meters, crowned by a castle built by the Arabs and framed by the Estelada and Pozo mountain ranges, it is the prelude to the Prades Mountains , which are covered with thick forests..

Due to its strategic location, it is one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Camp de Tarragona, dominating from the Montserrat mountains to the Ebro Delta, the entire Tarragona coastline is at its feet and on clear days it is not difficult to glimpse Mont Major de Majorca.

Among its historical heritage, the Albiol Castle stands out, although only some parts of the original castle remain, since its demolition and destruction was ordered after the Guerra dels Segadors, in 1654. However, parts of the wall with some square towers are preserved. and the central buildings. From the top you can see a splendid panoramic view of the area.

In the historic center of the municipality, near the castle, we can also find the church of San Miguel del Albiol, built at the end of the 18th century, it consists of a single nave with open chapels between the buttresses. The main portal is a semicircular voussoir arch supported by pilasters with classical capitals.

Another of its attractions is Villa Urrutia. This is a modernist building with a ground floor and one story high, with a cylindrical tower that configures the horizon around the Masies Catalanes. Around it there is a garden of which a small temple and a series of stairs and balustrades with glazed ceramics forming colored drawings are preserved.

El Albiol, due to its location, is a very good point to start hiking routes that will allow us to discover the natural environment of the Prades Mountains.
