Pinell de Brai

It is located on the border with the Baix Ebre, the district of Pinell de Brai is mainly mountanois, formed by the mountain ranges of Cavalls and Pàndols, where the highest point is Punta Alta, of 705 m altitude. The river Canaletes, that has its source at Els Ports, crosses the south of the district, before ending in the’ Ebre. The houses in the historic centre are on a clifftop over 100 -metre high slender belltower, close to cliff, therefore they are known as Hanging Houses. The village streets are steep and irregular, evidence of a Mediaeval past.

Walking around the town

It is 19th-century style. On the façade there is a frieze, by the painter Xavier Nogués. Inside, highlights include the unique elliptical·arches.

The houses in the old centre are on a cliff, so they are known as the Hanging Houses.
