Priorat, a pradise for wine lovers
The Montsant wine region does not only have beautiful landscapes, but also the villages located at the foot of the massif display a charm that is difficult to resist. Siruana is one of those hard-to-resist towns with cobbled streets and unique views, where legend and history are intertwined. We should also mention another magical town called, La Vilella Baixa with its medieval character. It has been nicknamed the New York of Priorat as its buildings are in a slope and on different heights on the ravine of Escaladei.
Priorat is also an area of great architectural and artistic wealth. In this respect we must mention Castell del Vi, the wine museum, located in the old fortress of Condes of Prades. Built in the 12th century, it now houses a modern three-storey museum, where visitors can explore the history of wine with interactive and audiovisual programmes.
Another place of interest, in addition to Minas Museum, is Cartuja de Escaladei. Besides being the first building to be built on the peninsula, it has a beautiful tale to tell. In their quest for land to settle in, the Carthusians found a shepherd who claimed to have seen angels in his dream. Hence the name of the region, "Stairway to God."
Priorat has a rich gastronomic offer, with traditional dishes and sweets that are typical of the region. To enjoy its innumerable attractions, there are many guesthouses to make you feel at home.
