In the heart of the Natural Area of the Gavarres, at the foot of the massif and within the municipality of Cassà, is the Can Vilallonga estate. This publicly owned estate is made up of a large medieval farmhouse and the lands and woods that were once part of it. It is set in a superb location, a landscape made up of a mosaic of cork forests and crop fields. The farm is crossed by the Vilallonga creek, whose water has been used since the modern era for the agricultural uses of the farm. Thus, in Can Vilallonga you can see a large water works that includes an old mill, several locks and ponds and three aqueducts that transported water from the stream to the farmhouse.
