The area is surrounded by pine forest and mediterranean scrub including lavender on the hillsides and gets very dry in the Summer. The altitude is around 1000 m and so it is consequently relatively cool in Summer compared with more coastal locations.

This sleepy town has suffered from the emigration of the younger demographic to towns where there is more work to be found.


Local specialities include casseroled Lamb knees and a heavy soup containing home-made pasta and beans.
