Turisme de L'Hospitalet de l'Infant i la Vall de Llors

Ghotic Hospital

In the heart of the town we find the majestic old hospital or hostel that dates from 1346 and was founded by Prince Peter (Infant Pere), the son of James II and Blanca d’Anjou. It provided shelter for pilgrims and travellers passing through the desolate Coll de Balaguer pass. This is the origin of the name l’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Prince’s Hospital) and is a reflection of the townspeople’s most charming characteristic, their hospitality.

 

El Torn Naturist Beach

A few minutes south of the centre of l’Hospitalet de l’Infant is a magnificent nudist beach located in a protected nature area known as Les Rojales, where the sea and the mountains add beauty in equal measure. This spot, with its perfect combination of unspoilt beach and stunning

scenery, enchants all who visit it.

 

 

The Hermitage of Sant Roc

In the heart of the town we find the majestic old hospital or hostel that dates from 1346 and was founded by Prince Peter (Infant Pere), the son of James II and Blanca d’Anjou. It provided shelter for pilgrims and travellers passing through the desolate Coll de Balaguer pass. This is the origin of the name l’Hospitalet de l’Infant (Prince’s Hospital) and is a reflection of the townspeople’s most charming characteristic, their hospitality.

 

La Rojala Viewpoint

From this lookout point located on the upper part of El Torn Beach you can enjoy magnificent views of the town’s beaches, as well as its more mountainous areas. This is a protected zone where you can enjoy and learn about nature. It is a good place to see typical Mediterranean pine groves.

 

The mouth of the River Llastres

Next to the marina is Punta del Riu Beach and at its southern end the mouth of the River Llastres, a fine example of a Mediterranean wetland area. From the boardwalk that crosses it you can observe some of the typical local plants and a small lake inhabited by the Iberian toothcarp, a tiny fish in danger of extinction.

 

Ca la Torre

Deep in the historical heart of Vandellòs we find

“Ca la Torre”, the town’s most important ancestral home, which takes its name from the mediaeval defensive torre or tower. These towers were built all along the coast and inland for observation and defence.

 

"El Turó del Castell" Lookout Point

High on a hill overlooking the village of Vandellòs is the Turó del Castell (Castle Hill) lookout point. It can be reached by climbing the steps cut into the rock with railings that begin at the bottom of Amunt Street, next to the C-44 road. Apart from magnificent views, at the top of the hill you will find two explanatory panels showing the relief of the nearby mountains.

 

Masia de Castelló

The village of Castelló has been uninhabited since the 1950s, although it retains much of its charm.

It is the venue for various activities during the year, including the “Rustic Festival” and the “Nativity Scene under the Stars”, when the village comes to life again and visitors can see what rural life was like in centuries past.

 

The Olive Oil Interpretation Centre

Alongside the road C-44 to Móra d’Ebre, is an old mill that has been converted into the Olive Oil Interpretation Centre. The testimonies of the former millers and the old machinery take you back to a past when the manufacture of olive oil was truly a handcraft.
