The castle and church of Clarà

Clarà Castle was built in the s. XV-XVI on the old medieval castle. It is an old farmhouse or fortified medieval square, with a courtyard accessed through a semicircular arch, under a tower with a battlement, currently restored, and which possibly belongs to the primitive core of the 14th century. The building had a special significance in the s. XV during the war between King John II and the Generalitat. Clarà Castle is also known by the local toponym cal Xeco.

The castle is part of the Baix Gaià castles route, which covers 12 castles in the north of the Tarragonès region.
