The municipality is located in a small plateau between Monte Bovalar and the valley of Caldes river. Thanks to its position, the city offers spectacular landscaping views. It is not uncommon to see the flight of vultures, which nest in the environs of the nearby rocks.
The main economic activity, like in other neighbouring localities, is the cattle ranch, in particular pig cattle. In the last few years, due to the growing importance acquired by the interior tourism, there has been an increase of rural lodgings, as a complement to the agrarian activity. Construction and service companies are also growing in importance.
