Altafulla is a municipality of medieval origin in the province of Tarragona, Catalonia. Nestled on the
southeastern slope of a mountain of 52 meters high, along the Mediterranean coast, belongs to the region of Tarragonès and is framed in the natural and historical supra-regional area of Camp de Tarragona and the sub-region of Baix Gaià. Although written documentation places its beginnings in the eleventh century, when the river was the border between the Catalan counties and the kingdom of Al-Andalus, archaeological excavations indicate that the origins of the fortification date back to the Muslim period or even earlier.
On the coast is one of the last forests that extend along the sea in Catalonia, part of which is a small nature reserve (under the Special Plan for Environmental Protection and Landscape Tamarit-Punta de la Móra). Also on the coast, it is home to the remains of the Roman Villa of Els Munts, which is part of a larger ensemble declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Gaià river "flows" into the sea, its last stretch being a small nature reserve and refuge for songbirds (Reserva Natural de Fauna Salvatge de la Desembocadura del Gaià), although due to the reservoirs upstream, it carries very little water in this last stretch, forming a small marsh separated from the sea by a sand bar. This wildlife reserve is managed by L'Hort de la Sínia, a center for ecological agriculture, learning and activities.

During the afternoons, volunteers will participate in complementary and leisure time activities: workshops, fauna observation, excursions, debates and other activities that will be prepared between all the volunteers.
There will be the option to organize extra activities with extra cost depending on what the volunteers want to do. For example, an excursion to Port Aventura World Park.

The environmental association La Sínia was born in 1997 with the main purpose of offering services and activities related to promoting conservation and restoration knowledge about natural, cultural and historical heritage of the Baix Gaià territory.
In 2009 they started to manage the river zone of Gaià and its surroundings.
Their tasks as an association are:
1. Restoration and conservation of river zones.
2. Study and recuperation of its biodiversity.
3. Promoting environmental volunteering though many activities they organize monthly.

The association is formed by a multidisciplinary and experimented team in environmental education, leisure in the nature and conservation of the territory and biodiversity.
