The town is located at the confluence of the river Sió and its tributary on the left, the Vergós stream.
The 15 houses in the town centre, built compactly around a square where the slopes of the roofs converge, and the parish church of Sant Pere, is one of the best examples in Catalonia of a walled town, i.e. a town protected by walls, with no buildings outside the walls.
It is a type of town typical of the ancient and medieval periods.
It was under the jurisdiction of the Duke of Cardona.
Towards the middle of the 19th century, the place had a population of 37 inhabitants.
