Set atop an oval shaped ridge, Montfalcó Murallat is a splendid example of a mediaeval walled village which has been perfectly conserved to the present day. Its old quarter has the Property of Cultural Interest designation.

Although mentions exist dating from the 10th century, the walls we see today in fact belong to the 13th century. They are built out of stone blocks and completely surround this small village in the region of La Segarra, protecting its fifteen or so houses. There is only one entrance gateway.

The various corners of this village have conserved not only the architecture but the very essence of a mediaeval settlement of this type. Its only street runs through the village in practically a circle, and gives onto a small central square which still contains the ancient cistern for collecting the water from the roofs of the houses, as well as the communal bread oven. In addition to the houses, it is also worth visiting the church of Sant Pere, which is Romanesque in origin although significantly reformed.
