Cabassers officially Cabacés and improperly called, is a town and municipality of the Priorat region.

It is located in the northwest of the region, on the border with the Ribera de Ebro. To the north is the end of the Bisbal of Falset, in the northeast, Margalef, to the east, that of the Morera de Montsant, in the the southeast of the High Vilella, and the south of the Figuera and Higuera, all of Priorat. The west side is bordered by the Ribera de Ebro: Tower Spanish southwest and west, Vinebre west and Palma de Ebro in the west and northwest.
Cabacés is the official place name, but the Institute of Catalan Studies has always defended the Cabassers way, was the official name until 1989

In the thirteenth century appears, for this population, the Arabic name "Abinkabaser". The first part of the word is clearly Arabic Arabic, and means "son of"; The second part is surely the Arabization of a Latin word (the absence in old any root of these features Arabic so suggests), which would take us to the root in Catalan would the words "cute" and "Cabassers" although in the form of antropónimo (name of person).

A cuckoo in current Catalan and also in old Catalan, is a large bassinet that served to contain wheat, barley or other cereals, or a mat of esparto round that was used to measure olives, or other similar functions. Whereas agricultural production in the region, both one and the other would give rise to the name of the office of Esparto who weaved with these utensils. It was common in ancient times that the names officially give the nicknames with which people knew.
