Prat de Comte

Prat de Comte is to the northeast of the Ports of Tortosa-Beseit. The district, due to its geographical location, is very rugged; the highest peaks are the hills of Engrilló and La Mola Grossa. Here we find the Engrilló, yew tree·a 1000-year old tree standing over 13 metres tall of great ecological and historic value.. The town, basically agricultural, has recently recovered the production of eau-de-vie that has always been closely linked to the Catalan country folk.
