Administratively La Serra d'Almos was formerly a municipality in its own right since 1787. In 1940, one year after the Spanish Civil War, the village was merged with the Tivissa municipality. Since 2009 it has become a Decentralized Municipal Entity (EMD), though still depending from Tivissa, located about 7 km away.
La Serra d'Almos has a church dedicated to Sant Domingo. The village is located in picturesque surroundings, in view of the Valley of the Ebro River at the feet of the Serra de Montalt, a subrange of the Serra de Llaberia, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Nowadays it is a favoured agritourism destination.
The wine produced in La Serra d'Almos is marketed under the Montsant DO denomination. Also local olives yield high-quality oil that has been awarded Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). This oil is marketed as DO Siurana.
