overing an area of 1,733 square kilometres, with a population of more than 35,000 inhabitants and 30 municipalities, the Noguera is the most extensive comarca in Catalonia, with towns and villages distributed throughout a highly variable range of geographies and landscapes.
The topography of the comarca shows a clear division between the north (Alta Noguera) and the south (Baixa Noguera). The Alta Noguera is characterised by its majestic Montsec mountain range, with the Àger and Meià valleys and a series of intermediate chains that boast spaces of outstanding natural beauty. Baixa Noguera extends over a wide expanse of soft earth watered by irrigation ditches and canals.
The landscape of these vast plains is dominated by the green of the hay, cereals and fruit trees. Among the rain-fed crops that predominate in the area of the Montsec and the mid-Segre are olive and almond trees, grapevines and wheat.
