Tremp is a bustling market town of considerable local importance due to the isolation of the region. Given that its resident population is only about 5000 its numerous butchers, fishmongers, patisseries, bakers, grocers, haberdashers etc. plus a large Monday market draws large numbers of shoppers from the surrounding villages - the only time when there could be said to be a traffic problem! Additionally there are markets in Sort on Tuesday and in La Pobla de Segur on Wednesday. Catalonia's own observatory is located nearby on the Montsec d'Ares mountain range and offers a superb visibility due to the lack of light pollution.

Through the heart of the town runs the tree lined rambla where tables and chairs are shaded from the sun from spring through to autumn and where several good restaurants and cafes offer tapas and local specialities alongside international cuisine, however, the most noted restaurants are mainly located in picturesque villages around the area. Tremp is justly famous for its charcuterie and the local style of Catalan cuisine is well known for its vegetable recipes, snail dishes, wild mushrooms and much much more!! Typically, a 3 course meal (menu del dia) of Catalan specialities including wine costs around 10-12 euros.

The immediate area, called the Conca de Tremp, is world renowned for its geology and palaeontology, with plentiful of sights to explore, including La Cova Negra, the biggest cave in Catalonia. The peace and tranquility offer a welcome contrast to Barcelona or the coastal resorts. The area is especially is well-known amongst rock climbers worlwide, and Terradets, Collagets, Vilanova de Meia and Santa Linya all lie within 45 minutes. A specific climbing guide to the area 'Lleida Climbs' offer detailed information

Further afield the Parc Nacional de AigŁestortes and the famous lake Sant Maurici are 1,5hrs drive away. The nearest ski resort of Port Aine is around one hour from Tremp and caters for all abilities.

Lately winemakers have returned to the area that has been cultivating wine for centuries and several wineries in the area offer tasting and tours (Encus, Sauvella and Vila Corona are the closest ones, all within 10km).
