The centre of the village is located a few kilometers distance to the Mediterranean Sea by what retains its substance; the municipal market, the Town Hall and the church are grouped in the center.

The village is sheltered by Puig Llorença and to the south, collapses formed impressive formations, coves and cliffs in its fall to the sea. To the north, the village opens to countryside, with the Montgó sighting closely.
