The area to urbanize is halfway between the river and the top of the hill. On the north side, the pathway is delimited by the sharp orography of the hill and the caves that have been formed by erosion over the years. On the south side, the medieval wall protects the hill along the course of the river.
The urbanization proposal draws a very natural layout adapted to the orography and tries to maintain part of the existing native vegetation.
