The following villages belong to this municipality: El Casal and Ceresa.

It lies on the left bank of the Cinca River. It is a starting point for those hiking towards the Peña Montañesa (Highland Rock), since it stands at its foot.

The popular style church is devoted to Nuestra Señora de los Dolores. We can also visit rural Romanesque style hermitages devoted to St. Andrews, and Fuensanta. The most outstanding among them is the 17th century Fuen Santa Hermitage, named after the important fountain. It has a rectangular nave divided into two bays and a vaulted apse with straight chevet. The door opens at its foot, and the date 1681 has been carved into the keystone. The building is topped by a one-eyed steeple.

The caretaker's house is also remarkable. The following inscription has been carved into the keystone: "Domingo Lecina was the first caretaker of the sanctuary of Fuen Santa in 1697". On the stone of the fountain, its sculptor carved this inscription written in Latin: "Adornavit Franciscus… Barbastrensi Natus, de Ceresa y La espuña, Rector", (Francisco decorated… born in Barbastro, vice-chancellor of La Espuña and Ceresa), dated 1699.

St. Mathew is the saint patron of this village. On St. Sebastian, a festivity in honour of the married ones is held. The third weekend of May, the spectacular descent of the Cinca River takes place on traditional timber rafts.
