Vilaplana is a small village (considered a nucleus) in the province of Lleida, and when we say small, we mean a municipality with no more than 20 inhabitants. It is a population reduced to just a few houses, the village church and a few farmhouses in the surrounding area.
Despite its size, Vilaplana was an independent village until the mid-19th century, when it became part of the Barony of Rialb. Read on and discover all that such a small place has to offer, and we are sure you won’t be disappointed!
