Festivities

On the second Sunday of August the village gathers in Santa Llúcia cave for traditional dancing. On 8th September, during the " Festa Major" there is more dancing, traditional "Sardanes" (Catalan dance) and games for children. 

Places to visit

The cave of Santa Llúcia is 1.5 km outside of the village on the road to Flix. There is an image of the virgin and a natural spring which is considered to be good for healing eye ailments. During the Battle of the Ebro (1938) it was used as a military hospital by the International Brigades.

Along the river Montsant, shortly before entering the village, one can see the remains of the Molins de Lliura [pound mills]. On carrer Major [main street] there stands out the Església de la Nativitat [church of the nativity], in neoclassical style with some barock elements. From the Metge Curçó and Enric Ventosa streets one has got breath-taking views of the valley and the Montsant massif. The area of La Bisbal contains very beautiful natural sights, such as the Cova Emboixa and the Cova Foradada [caves]. One can do outings into the Montsant on the many paths around the village, e.g. on the old trail to Cabacés.
