Bordered by the flat plains of Monegros to the south, the village of El Tormillo belongs to the municipality of Peralta de Alcofea. It shows another side of Somontano; a semi-arid landscape with gentle rolling slopes covered with juniper and aromatic plants.
Traditionally, the local people worked the land, cultivating crops without the use of irrigation. However, in recent years the countryside has been transformed into vast expanses of irrigated land where crops such as maize and alfalfa are grown for forage.
In addition to the surprising beauty of the landscape, the area also boasts scattered remnants of its medieval past.
