We are going to introduce you to a small village in the Barony of Rialb, in Lleida: Sant Martí. In ancient times, the village was known by the name of Sant Martí del Puig. It is believed to have reached its peak during the Middle Ages.
Nowadays, this municipality has no more than 15 inhabitants, and this is one of the things that makes it so special, since despite having so few residents, it has managed to captivate and impress many tourists. Come and get to know it!
