Alfarràs is a municipality that is located in the extreme north of the Segrià region. Alfarràs has an aggregate nucleus that is Andaní. The name of the municipal term of Alfarràs comes from the Arabic and means mill, since in its time there was a barracks with a flour mill. It is evident that the Arab influence was very important in this territory, even so, it coexisted perfectly with the concessions, grants and restrictions coming from the Catalan counties and from the ecclesiastical sector. However, it is also worth mentioning that there were certain conflicts between families due to heritage issues. But it was nothing, that the king could not solve with his intervention.

In the 15th century the flour mill was enlarged and given the appearance it has today. Obviously, the mere fact that a mill existed meant that an energy source was needed to make it work and it could not be other than water. This element is essential in the life of Alfarràs, since riverbanks and torrents pass through its term. That is why we highlight the Pinyana channel and the same mill raft.

Of its heritage, the old church of Sant Pere stands out, with an interesting façade and the old bridge that crosses the river, which was partly destroyed during the war.

The main festival of Alfarràs is celebrated by Sant Pere in summer and by Sant Sebastià in winter. The municipality of Andaní also has its own celebrations, in this case for Sant Llorenç in summer and for Sant Nicolau in winter. We cannot forget the Ribagorçana Peach Fair, which is held on the second Sunday of October and which is an outstanding element since it has received the recognized Q for quality (qualitat).
