Many of the 132 inhabitants of Granyena de les Garrigues mainly grow olive and almond trees.

The village preserves many sites with medieval features, like narrow streets and stone houses.

Both the old and the new churches were built during two periods of prosperity, the repopulation period and the time when olive cultivation was spreading. The 18th-century Sant Miquel church boasts a beautiful Baroque façade and a Neoclassical inner nave. The old church with its simple late Romanesque façade is still standing.
