Routes from your holiday cottage through the Segrià
We call the set of municipalities Segrià Sec
that share more historical features with the other region called Les Garrigues than with Segrià. We are talking about Almatret
, Llardecans, Maials
, Sarroca de Lleida
and Torrebesses, towns that have replaced apple, pear and peach trees with olive and almond trees.
An unforgettable route
is the one that goes through Maials - Llardecans - Torrebesses
, through relatively flat paths that discover dry stone cabins and original pistachio plantations, without forgetting the cultural offering of each of the localities.
And if you're a hiker, you can't miss the Montmaneu peak
, a mountain 495 meters high in the municipality of Seròs
, which the people of Lleida refer to as the Everest of Segrià.
The Baix Segre del Segrià, known internationally
The Baix Segre
natural region includes the municipalities of Alcarràs
, Torres de Segre, Soses
, La Granja d'Escarp and Massalcoreig
. With the success of the film Alcarràs

with its fields of flowering trees and futurism,
they have moved to this region of Segrià everything the country and even in Japan.

In Alfarràs, the vestiges of the Cassals spinning mill and the Viladés spinning mill
remain. La Mata de Pinyana
, in the municipality of Alguaire
, was one of the four important industries installed along the course of the canal of the same name and of which the old factory and some of the houses of the colony are preserved, while Alguaire guards its ice well
, from the 16th and 17th centuries.
