Torroja is a small village, just under 150 inhabitants, who have wisely maintained the charm of days gone by. The cobbled streets make up geometric shapes. The village church is home to an ancient Barroque organ dating back to the 18th century. You cannot miss an evening watching the sunset from El Balconet.
The village has a restaurant, a wine shop, a hotel, a café and various wineries. There is also the DOCa. Priorat regulatory board headquarters.
Torroja has historically been a wine producing village. The majority of its soils are llicorella (local name for the slate-based soils found in Priorat) and the wines are unquestionably of a high quality.
