It is on the River Set and situated on a rolling territory where 174 people live.
The village, 279 metres above sea level, is located on a plain dominated by Església Parroquial de la Mare de Déu de l’Assumpció (parish church), in Renaissance style, with a Baroque façade and a stone belfry. Sant Crist is strongly worshipped; according to tradition, he was the brother of the ones in Granadella and Balaguer, and even their three crosses were carved out of the same tree. Formerly Esglèsia de l’Assumpció (church) housed an image of the Saint in a side chapel on the left of the high altar.
The village of Cogul still preserves houses from the 16th- and 17th-centuries.
One kilometre from the village, on the way to Albagés, there are the famous cave paintings of Cogul, in the rock or cave called els Moros. It is a huge rock which stands on one side of the way, where there are exceptional and unique prehistoric remains.
The deposit, the northernmost in this group, is one of the best known ones since it was one of the first discovered and, above all, due to the originality of its dance scene.
The frieze is made up of 40 figures painted in different styles, some of which make up special scenes. The most used colours are red and black. Several figures are both carved and painted and 10 are only carved. The drawings show bulls, goats, deers and also some hunters with a bow, but the most original part is a dance scene with 10 women surrounding a naked man.
There are also Iberian and even Roman inscriptions which fill the whole cave.
Within the village area there is an old uninhabited settlement called Montballet, which preserves Saladar tombs. They are rectangular, carved in the rock, of Arabian origin and one of them is called Les Creus, because inside there are some crosses carved and drawn on the rock; this cave is very well hidden and it is difficult to find it unless with the help of one the village neighbours.
There, you can also go hunting, preferably partridges, rabbits, hares and thrushes.
