Land of vineyards located between 350 and 550 m above sea level and characterized by a dry, Mediterranean climate with scarce rainfall (between 350 and 450 mm / year). Land with plentiful sunlight and balanced between two significant winds: the Cierzo, which blows from the interior, and the Ábrego or sea wind.
The “Catalan Tuscany”
Its landscape maintains all the typical traits característics of an inland region near the Mediterranean Sea: pre-coastal limestone mountain ranges (Ports d’Horta, Serra de Pàndols and Serra de Cavalls), small rivers (the Algars and the Canaletes), mountains of conglomerate rock, forests of holm oak and white pine and, above all, fields of almond trees, vineyards and olive groves. Within this context fall three kinds of landscape of clearly differentiated agricultural interest: the plains, high plains and valleys. The landscape amalgam of limestone ranges, pine and holm oak forests, almond trees, olive trees and vines have led this place to be seen as the Catalan Tuscany.
