Pothead is a municipality in the Priorat region or, historical Priorat. Your name owes its origin to the leek plant, because in this valley had a lot of plantations of this food, which belongs to the same species as the garlic and onions.

Historically, Porrera has been a town that has passed through several hands and a victim, at certain times, of the abuses diezmarios of the members of the monastery of Scala. But from the thirteenth century, the town was fortified with a castle and walls. But not isolated from the environment, but on the contrary, defends his ideals at all times and even he comes to call "unruly population than any other in Catalonia".

Porrera Township include the parish church, eighteenth century, neoclassical and baroque elements, dedicated to Sant Joan Evangelista. And, as a feature, sundials, specifically known as Afternoon clock which is a type of vertical clock reclining, we found located in the Plaza de la Guineu, very rare in Catalunya, or inclined vertical quadrant located at Pau Casals.

The hilltop also find the chapel dedicated to Saint Anthony, with a single nave and seventeenth century.

The main festivals are Porrera of Sant Antoni, January 17, when he gets to the shrine of his patron with animals in blessing, the festival, held on the weekend closest to May 6 and is known as "The Cirereta" and the second weekend of September, we celebrate the autumn festival of breaking pots and distributing cocaine to the village children.

If you talk about Porrer should mention the presence of Lluís Llach in this population, since many years has spent long periods here, until it ended permanently installed. He owns a vineyard and a cellar under the name of Vall Llach.
