General Vista of Peramola.
The term of Peramola is located in the South part of the Alt Urgell, between the municipalities of Coll de Nargó, Oliana and Bassella. One extends from the right margin of the Segre to the limit with the region of the Noguera, and from the mountain range of Aubenç, to the north, to the abutments of the mountain of Sant Marc, to the south. In the middle of the term is the emblematic mountain of Sant Honorat. They furrow to the term several torrents and precipices, like the Salat, the one of Rumbau and the one of Nerola. To the municipality of Peramola it is possible to be acceded from C-14 (old C-1313), to the height of the bridge that crosses the Segre under the prey of Oliana. All the inhabited nuclei of the term are communicated by asphalted local highways.
In century XI, Peramola belonged to the horseman Arnau Mir deTost. More ahead, the castle of the villa was center of baronia of Peramola, satately jurisdiction that almost included/understood the totality of the present municipality. The writers Josep Espunyes and Joan Obiols and painter Francesc Riart are children of Peramola. The agricultural and cattle base of the term, centered in cattle and pig, has been diversified these last years with an increasing incidence of the sector of services, specially those directed to the tourism: hostelería and restoration, hiking, deprived area of hunting..., guaranteed by its attractive natural surroundings. Next to the Segre there is one of greatest piscifactorías of Europe. Most of the population it lives in the villa of Peramola, head of the municipality, and the rest in the nuclei of Cortiuda, Nuncarga and Tragó.
