Caseres. The puig de les Gesseres and the river Algar.

 Caseres is located west of Gandesa, just at the administrative boundary separating Catalonia Aragon. Waldo can be reached from the N-420 in 19 km. In the north-east are the Sierra Caseres Botja (Mudèfer hill, 526 m). In the east, the Sierra Pessells does it divide the waters discharged into the river and river Algars of Caneletes. Caseres belonged to the municipality of Horta de Sant Joan when, in 1153, the castle of Miravet, with its full term, was given by Ramon Berenguer IV, the Templars in gratitude for his fight against the Saracens. Later he was part of the Order of Horta, who later became the Hospitallers. From the village stands the church of Santa Magdalena. Built in the s. XIII, highlight the traditional rectangular nave Romanesque and Gothic apse of the portal arch. Within the term Caseres, not too far from town, are the core of Almudèfer where we still see the remains of the castle and church of Santa Anna.

Next we find a curious tank dug into the rock. The church of Santa Anna is at the foot of the castle, the original structure was in transition to Gothic Romance.
