The walled enclosure, dating from the Middle Ages, is preserved in excellent condition. The main attractions are the walls themselves, the three gateways, the various circular or square towers placed along the wall (shaped by the houses themselves), the parish church of Sant Llorenç or the irrigation channel that crosses the old quarter through the north of the wall, where some public and private washing places are still preserved. Beyond the walls, the privately owned castle of Sant Llorenç, of which there is documentary evidence dating back to the 13th century, and the watchtower (or Moors tower) formed the rest of the mediaeval defence complex.
