Sudanell is a municipality in the comarca of the Segrià in Catalonia. It is located by the junction of two rivers: the Segre and the Set. Agriculture is Sudanell's principal economic activity (peaches, apples, pears, corn). Two canals: Canal de Seròs and Acèquia de Torres irrigate the area.

Elements of touristic interest[edit]

  • Cross Head (Creu del Terme). Made from stone and dated from the 14th century.
  • Parish church of Sant Pere (Saint Peter). The primitive parish church of Sant Pere, Romanesque, was replaced in the 18th century for an extense Baroque building, with a monumental façade.

  • The Official town's Holy Day is on the first weekend in October.
