In the south-east of the county, on the boundary between the Priorat and the Baix Camp and at the source of the Marçà watercourse, lies La Torre de Fontaubella. It is separated from the Baix Camp by the Llaberia and Argentera hills where they meet at the Coll Roig pass, near the peak of La Mola, 914 m above sea level.
Sports ground, multipurpose hall, social centre, camping and leisure area, rural accommodations, bar-restaurant, food shop and farm shop.
The summer festivity is at the first weekend in August, and the winter one on 31st December and 1st January, when there is usually a communal dinner, dance and theatre.
La Torre de Fontaubella is a picturesque little village, overlooked by the imposing bulk of La Mola, with its flat top set amid a landscape of shady, well-watered woodlands.
One of the many worthwhile walks is up La Mola along one of several waymarked paths. At the top of La Mola are the remains of a watch tower. From the top you can see the Mediterranean sea and much of the Costa Daurada, including the Cap de Salou, making up a wonderful view on clear days. There are also walks in the Llaberia hills, including to the village of the same name, and the Argentera hills, where there is a well-preserved square Romanesque tower. Also recommended is the footpath through the Enderrocada wind farm.
It can be reached by road from Falset on the T-3000 as far as Marçà and then the TV-3001 to La Torre de Fontaubella; from Pradell de la Teixeta on the TV-3223; from Reus on the N-420 and then the TV-3223, and from Colldejou on the TV-3220.
