Benifallet is a mountainous municipality in the comarca of Baix Ebre. It is located at the foot of the Ebro River, so it is a coastal town in every way.

In his term already found remains of Neolithic rock station as the Cave of Culla in which we find represented two highly stylized black and colored human figures. In the cave of Aumidiella found fragments of pottery and flint tools. But these are not the only caves that comprise the town of Benifallet. Marigot is also the Cave, Cave Wonders Cave of Two and Sima Siphon, important for containing formations such as stalactites and stalagmites. The set of all these caves is named Benifallet cave.

In addition, the municipality are two historic towns. A seventh century BC in which they found a lot of Phoenician pottery. The other is of Iberian period and has a wall height of 3m and 4m width Castellot called Red Rock. This town is visited as it is musealized panels so that visitors can take a tour. In Roman times, too, there is evidence of a villa, a necropolis and a press.

Within the nucleus of Benifallet find two churches. Ancient parish church located in the upper part of the town, built in the thirteenth century and of Romanesque style, and the current century temple, but completely rebuilt after the Civil War's two churches are dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin. Instead, in the Sierra de Cardó found the old convent of Sant Hilari Cardó built in the early seventeenth century, of which the old church is used as a museum and several chapels preserved that were part of the whole, although most are in ruins.

Near the convent is the old spa that took advantage of the medicinal waters Cardó saw until it was closed in 1967 and during the Civil War it was used as a hospital.

The natural environment is one of the main attractions of Benifallet, since it is a village surrounded by mountains and located on the banks of the river Ebro attaches great diversity of landscapes in a small space.

Benifallet has several parties, but include the fifth party held in December in which, traditionally, the boys called to go do the military collected funds. Today the tradition continues, although military service is no longer required.
