Settlement of the hills

The landscape of the hills reveals the continuous presence of humans over the ages.

The landscape of the hills reveals the continuous presence of humans over the ages.

The gentle slopes of the Serra de Godall rise between the plains of La Galera and the basin of Ulldecona in the municipal districts of Godall, Ulldecona and Freginals. From here we may enjoy stunning views of the El Port Massif, the Serra de Montsià, the Delta and the entire inland comarca of Montsià, even though the vantage point stands only 398 metres above sea level.

The landscape of the Serra reveals evidence of ancient settlements, as we learn from the rock art in the shelters of L'Ermita de la Pietat (declared world heritage sites by UNESCO) and several Iberian settlements. Permanent human presence over time has created a delightful mosaic of contrasts, in which dry-farming crop fields, uncultivated land, dry stone constructions, former quarries, clay pits, coal mines, pastures and hunting land combine.

Easy access to the hills, which are part of the Natura 2000 network, makes them the ideal place for a peaceful walk. Several itineraries run through the most interesting parts of this natural territory, such as the La Caldera gorge, the springs of La Serra and the Les Talaies vantage point. We may contemplate all this from this one place.
