The whole of this area is bordered by the dramatic relief of mountain ranges with peaks reaching a height of between 900 and 1000 metres. The slopes are covered with forests and criss-crossed with ancient footpaths.

Water from the canyons that pit the surface of these hills pours into the mighty River Cinca and from there into the more tranquil waters of the El Grado reservoir.

The territory offers a varied cultural landscape strongly linked to traditional trades that use clay and salt, which in turn bring great personality to the village.

The streets and houses are adapted to the steep slopes of the village and due to the difference in levels between the streets many houses are distributed over 3 or 4 floors.

The 18th century Dolores chapel, which crowns the hill on the road towards Santa Cruz, boasts a magnificent panoramic view over the surrounding countryside. The Santa Quiteria chapel rises up on a small mound near a castle known as the Castillo de Piedra Pisada. It dates back to the 16th century with renovations from the 17th century.
