The municipality of Agramunt is located in the Urgell region, located at the foot of the Sió river. The municipality is made up of the aggregates of Almenara Alta, Donzell de Urgell, Mafet, Montclar d'Urgell and Les Puelles.

The history of the town of Agramunt dates back to the year 1070 when it was fortified to resist the invasion of the Arabs. As a result of this long history, a large number of buildings of great interest have remained. To see part of this history it is advisable to get lost in its steep streets.

In the center of the town we find the Agramunt Town Hall, a baroque-style building from the 18th century located in a porticoed square. Another very interesting square is the Plaza del Mercadal, square in shape from the 19th century, one of the first squares in Catalonia that was built following urban planning criteria. It is interesting to pass by Calle de Sió where there are some large porches on the right side and a very interesting façade with small ceramic tiles from 1933.

Also worth highlighting is the Church of Santa María de Agramunt, from the 12th and 13th centuries and in Romanesque style with a three-nave plan finished with three apses, and with Toulouse, Mudejar influences and some decorations of Anglo-Norman origin. In 1931 it was declared a National Monument.

On the outskirts of the town, but clearly visible, is the Montclar Castle, a fortification from the reconquest (11th century) rebuilt in the 17th century, declared a National Historical-Artistic Monument in 1979. Also on the outskirts we find the Pilar de 'Almenara, a round watchtower from the 11th century from where you can see a fantastic panoramic view.

In terms of gastronomy, Agramunt is known for its nougat made with honey, nuts and egg white, traditionally made since the 18th century. Their stone chocolate is also very well known.

For those who want to delve deeper into art and culture there is also the Espai Guinovart, where the work of the painter and sculptor Josep Guinovart is; the Municipal Ethnological Museum or the Lo Pardal Visual Poetry House.
