Heritage

History has left in our lands a multitude of elements from the Iberian era to today and they show the radiance in the past.. Iberian villages of Batea, Caseres and Gandesa are the first footprint that history has made in the region. Repopulated by the Knights Templar after the expulsion of the Saracens , remains of towers and castles that built to defend territory are still very evident, as shown we can see the remains of the castle Algars in Batea, and the prior tower in Horta de Sant Joan. Religious architecture is present in all towns with magnificent Romanesque and Gothic buildings that surprised visitors pleasantly , include the Church of Sant Miquel in Batea built during the 18th century with baroque neo-classical style; the parish church of Sant Andreu in Fatarella began in the 17th century, where the interior is Renaissance style with Gothic elements and the facade is Baroque style of the 18th century; church of the Assumpció of Gandesa, built during the first quarter of the 13th century, of Romanesque style in the apse with extensions made in the 17th century; and the parish church of Sant Llorenç in Vilalba dels Arcs, building that combines elements of different styles, Gothic , Renaissance and Baroque styles, where highlights the slim Baroque bell of 40 meters height. It is also important the Convent of la Mare de Déu dels Àngels, or Sant Salvador in Horta de Sant Joan, maked of a group of buildings of different chronologies (13th - 17th centuries) arranged around a Renaissance cloister.

There is civil architecture in ancient Renaissance palaces in Arnes and Horta de Sant Joan and majestic houses like La casa de la Comanda in Horta de Sant Joan. We should also mention the modernist cooperative cellars by Cèsar Martinell located in Gandesa and Pinell de Brai, well-known as wine cathedrals.
