The region is divided in three different areas . the marina, the central sector of Llevant mountain range and the interior area of es Pla. The first one extends from the coastline till a height of 100 m. Its terrain is flat and the landscape, originally of wild-oil and some almond trees. The second area is the central sector of the Sierra de Llevant, with a gentle relief. It is formed by the south-western part of Calicant Massif, the intermediate high plateau and the ranges of Llodrá and Mola des Fangar. The landscape is alternated by vegetation on the mountaintops like wild-oil trees, dwarf fan palms and pine wood, and dry land cultures in torrent-beds and on hillsides. The interior area is characterized by its flatness, only cut by la Nou valley. The fertility of the terrain and thermic inversions have created a favourable atmosphere for cereal and vineyard cultures
