Vilalba dels Arcs
The municipality of Vilalba dels Arcs is in the valley of Voravall and in some formations that belong to the mountains of La Fatarella. The whole area is very rugged, is due to the ravines that carry the water of the Ebre . From the Calvary Path, we enjoy the panoramic view of the old walls, with ancient walls and the entrance to the village in the foreground. The old town centre, rounded with steep, narrow streets, maintain an old ambience that is very common in the region’s villages..

Only the porches of the Town Square are currently conserved, but before there are also those on the High Street. There are interesting examples of traditional architecture, such as Casa Martell and Casa Coll. One must contemplate the Church of Sant Llorenç, built in the 16th century with a mix of styles. The main façade highlights’ with the 40 -metre high slender belltower. The old Chapel of the Mare de Déu de Gràcia is also important, which was built during the period of the Knights Templar..
