Tarrés has 107 inhabitants and stands out for the exposed stone façades on many of its constructions, which encourage you to stroll around to enjoy this harmonious urban complex of houses and streets. Prominent among the buildings is the Assumpció de Maria parish church from the 18th-19th centuries, which boasts an impressive two-level octagonal belltower.
Just beside the parish church is Cal Magre (1809), which has a beautiful arcaded façade and the large semi-circular arch at the entrance to the Town Hall is also worth seeing.
This town has three curious sites: Plaça de La Font, which still has the troughs where animals were watered and clothing laundered; La Ferreria, a space which contains the tools from the old Tarrés smithery; and the Santa Creu hermitage on the outskirts, where an old hayloft with its own threshing floor have been converted into a place of worship.
The large forest stand within its township make it the ideal place for mountain biking, while you can also enjoy nature and culture in the circuits of paths through the water in the dry-farming area and the Lime Route, which shares the village’s former livelihood of lime production. There are still many ancient lime ovens dotted around the forests, as well as other dry-stone constructions like verges and livestock huts. Plus, many defunct quarries are still visible, the source of some of the stone used to build the palace of King Martin the Humane in the neighbouring Cistercian monastery of Poblet.
