It has a legacy and an important natural and historical value that identifies with the identity of its citizens. Despite that, it's a peripheral region in the whole of Catalonia, and they have not always been able to correct the structural problems that mean for its inhabitants. On the one hand many young people decide to move out to find a job or study. On the other hand , agriculture, basically planted with citrus and dried fruit has brought many people from other countries to get a decent job although the current economy makes a lot people currently not working . Tortosa is the largest city and cultural center of the region, but also living in a rural area there are a disadvantaged level of communication and educational and cultural opportunities .
