A group of friends come to spend a week in Les Garrigues, specifically in Les Borges Blanques and Arbeca to be able to discover the history and culture of the region that few people know and combine it with trying the most typical local products such as the olive oil, wine or nuts.

During the stay, they will do 4 days of walking excursions, where they can visit dry stone cabins, the Iberian fortress Els Vilars, different castles and churches as well as a small museum that collects the history of the city during the Civil War era.

All the excursions they will do will be affordable for everyone, both in terms of distance and elevation, so that you don’t have to rely on the use of a car or other means of transport.
