Linyola is the northernmost municipality in the comarca of Pla d'Urgell. Its hilltop location makes it look good part of the Plana d'Urgell. The name seems Linyola population comes from the flax flower, as in the past was important in the area and the Romans decided to put this name.

Agriculture has always been basic Linyola population. Much improved with the construction of the Canal d'Urgell in the mid-nineteenth century. This did increase the population and even down the walls and gates surrounding the village to accommodate and helped to increase the number of crops Linyola.

The old Linyola is an area of great historical interest, which is the arcaded square and the church of Santa Maria de Linyola fifteenth century probably work because there is no clear start date. It is Gothic with some element of Romanesque and a sixteenth-century bell tower, designed by Bartomeu Roig. This bell is the most emblematic of the population and with four watchtowers becomes the only of its kind in Catalonia. In the same period we find the Town Hall, a Renaissance palace in the bourgeois family who lived in the eighteenth century.

Within the municipality of Linyola can also visit the Sitges, the font Vellay some collections dedicated to rural.

Linyola has a signature dish, the cassola of Linyola ters prepared snails, rabbit, spinach and a great mix of food to make a delicious dish.

As far as celebrations are concerned, we find Santa Quitèria festivals in the month of May, which is initiated by the party celebrating Cassola and Mare Déude by August.
