La Vilella Alta

The municipality is the smallest in the whole of the Priorat region with an area of just 5.25 km2. It is centred around the Riuet d’Eescaladei river valley, shortly before its joins the Montsant river. The entire right side is formed by the cliffs of the Serra del Montsant, known here as the "cingles dels Montalts" (Montalt Cliffs).

The majority of the municipality, all the foothills of Montsant, forms part of the Serra del Montsant Natural Park.
The village dates from 1286 and was the work of the Cartoixa d'Escaladei (Escaladei Carthusian monks). Its history is closely entwined with that of the monastery.
