La importancia histrica de la Segarra se ve reflejada en los restos arqueolgicos o monumentales que se conservan en muchos lugares de la comarca: prehistricos (Sant Guim de Freixenet), romanos (Guissona), romnicos (Cervera), gticos (Les Pallargues), barrocos (Sant Ramon) y modernistas (el sindicato de Cervera).

En cuanto a cultivos, hallamos los llanos cerealistas y el olivo y el almendro en la montaa media. La ganadera constituye un importante complemento de la agricultura. La industria proporciona numerosos puestos de trabajo en las poblaciones ms importantes: Cervera, Guissona, Tor y Sant Guim de Freixenet.

Uno de los atractivos a visitar en la comarca, adems del conjunto monumental de Cervera, son los castillos que alberga, que, al principio, fueron talayas en lo alto de las colinas que vigilaban los caminos y que ms adelante llegaran a ser ncleos de poblacin.
