The municipality is characterized for having a relatively small urban nucleus, with a very old origin, and a dispersed settlement linked to the agricultural economy, also of long tradition. Also for having maintained the classical architectural structures, without having penetrated the fashions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, apart from the creation of the colonies and some historical elements such as the church of Roser or the Tower of the Lord of the colony of l ' Ametlla.
The different paths that surround the municipality provide great views and pleasures of nature, ideal to enjoy as a family.
