Abella de la Conca.

San Esteban church

Abella de la Conca is Township Pallars Jussà.

It is the most northerly of the Dellà basin, which occupies the southeastern third of Pallars Jussà. Although geographically is part of this basin, it's not part from the administrative point of view, because in 1970, the rest of municipalities of this area became in one municipality, Isona, now called Isona and Conca Dellà,  Abella de la Conca remained on the sidelines, remaining as an independent municipality.
 

The most significant element, of course, is the Romanesque parish church of San Esteban, documented in 1141, Lombard Romanesque style.

The castle, which sits on top of the village, documented since the eleventh century, and now in ruins, was the center of the barony of Abella.

Currently within the municipality of Abella de la Conca there are not any tourist service.  Nor it has any stores: the proximity of the town of Isona meets all the needs of the inhabitants of Abella.

La Conca Dellàr 65 or 75 million years ago was a coastal plain open to the Atlantic Ocean. In this plain  there developed beaches, deltas, marshes, rivers and lakes, with a warm and lush vegetation, a coastal landscape of a tropical plateau where dinosaurs enjoyed swimming in the beach, while we can contemplate nowadays cliffs and gorges in growing.

On the route of the dinosaurs you must stop in the village of Isona, where is placed the Museum of the Conca Dellà,  shelter Cretaceous Park, is the setting for an exciting journey through time. The museum offers the opportunity to discover an area that long ago was occupied by the Roman culture, and long before, inhabited by some of the last dinosaurs that lived on earth.
