The Neolithic La Mota dolmen and some Roman remains prove the area housed an old settlement. Palol de Revardit has a very large pine and holm oak wooded area which, alongside the limit on building, provides a privileged natural setting. The River Revardit crosses a large part of the municipality until flowing into the River Terri and lends its name to the village. The Riudellots brook is further to the south – a tributary of the River Terri which it joins outside the county. The small mountains branching out from the Rocacorba Sierra and Puig de Sant Dalmau make up the mountain-scape surrounding the municipality.
