Bellaguarda is a municipality of 288 inhabitants (2022). There are many activities in the village, which provide a range of services and opportunities.
Bellaguarda is a village of enormous ecological value. The cultivated lands of olive trees, almond trees and toffee oaks make up a landscape mozaic, interspersed with wooded areas of pines, various kinds of oaks, and scrub. The terrain is ideal for the production of premium quality extra virgin olive oil, the local agri-food product par excellence.
To the south of the municipality rises the Serra del Montsant (mountain range), declared a Natural Park, an essential destination for lovers of hiking and climbing. It is also suitable for sport hunting.
In the middle of the village and on top of a rock, stands the Bellaguarda Parish Church, dedicated to Sant Antoni Abat. It is of Gothic origin with a beautiful portal on the facade. The interior nave is neoclassical, dating from the 18th century, and retains the original paintings, some large grisailles on the sides of the high altar.
In Plaça Major (square) a restored Gothic cross is preserved, and there is a magnificent view over the gardens of Lleida and the foothills of the Pyrenees.
On the 25th of April, the Day of Sant Marc, the Festa Major d’hivern is celebrated here. On the last weekend of August, the Summer Festival takes place with the traditional “meeting” of paellas.
