TARRAGONA AND DE NORTH COAST IN 2 DAYS

 

In just two days, you can discover what the city of Tarragona and its surroundings were like in ancient Roman times. The city is steeped in Roman heritage: the walls, circus, amphitheatre, Pont del Diable (Devil's Bridge), Scipio family funeral monument and forum are just a few good examples. You can also learn about present-day Tarragona, visiting the picturesque fishermen's district, El Serallo, and sampling a savoury suquet de peix (fish stew) or rossejat de fideus (noodle paella). You will need an entire day to explore this Mediterranean city: with good reason, it has been declared an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. The second day, drive north to the towns of Torredembarra and Creixell, with their extensive beaches, and the protected coastal nature reserve Els Muntanyans, located within Torredembarra town lines. Farther along the national highway, you will come to the Barà Arch, a commemorative Roman monument, as well as the singular El Roc de Sant Gaietà holiday village, both within the municipal boundaries of Roda de Barà. Leaving the highway to follow the coast, you will come to the towns of Coma-ruga, Sant Salvador and Calafell with their popular beaches. Be sure to visit the Iberian citadel in the latter. Finally, if you would like to enjoy more beaches, continue along the coast to the towns of Segur de Calafell and Cunit or head inland to El Vendrell to discover the legacy of the master cellist Pau Casals.

MONASTERIES, CASTLES AND WINE COOPERATIVES

 

This two-day route winds through the counties of El Tarragonès, L'Alt Camp and La Conca de Barberà. The route begins in Valls, considered the capital of the Catalan tradition of castellers, or human castles, which it has kept alive for centuries. The city is also home to several interesting sights, such as the bell tower of the church of Sant Joan Baptista or the chapel of El Roser. The route continues with the monastery of Santes Creus, one of the main stops on the Cistercian Route, after which it heads north to Santa Coloma de Queralt to visit the town's magnificent castle. If you continue onward to Vallfogona de Riucorb, you may wish to stop at the recently refurbished Riucorb Spa along the way. The second day, the route will take you to La Conca de Barberà, where we recommend stopping in some of the region's tiny mediaeval villages, such as Forés or Conesa, to soak in the charm of their ancient alleyways. Finally, we must not forget the region's long winemaking history. To this end, several local wineries offer tastings of select DO Conca de Barberà wines. Additionally, you can visit the Modernist wineries in Rocafort de Queral, Sarral and Barberà de la Conca, which, in addition to its architecture, was the first wine cooperative set up in Catalonia.

THE SPIRIT OF THE CROWN OF ARAGON AND ITS MOUNTAINS

 

This route will take you deep into the history of La Conca de Barberà, beginning with its capital, Montblanc. A mediaeval town par excellence, Montblanc is surrounded by ancient walls with thirty merlon-topped watchtowers. It is also home to the Santa Magdalena hospital and the church of Santa Maria, which lies on the opposite side of the elegant Pont Vell, or Old Bridge. After exploring the city, drive on to L'Espluga de Francolí, where you will find the fascinating Museum of Rural Life, as well as Font Major Cave, today a prehistory and geology museum. A few kilometres farther along lies the second stop on the Cistercian Route: the monastery of Santa Maria de Poblet, declared an official World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Built in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, it is still home to monks who live in peaceful, spiritual retirement. The route continues to the Prades Mountains, where, if you wish, you can leave your car to explore the vast forests on foot. Do not forget to sample the potatoes in the town of Prades, whose quality has earned them their own designation of origin. On the way back to Montblanc, you will pass Capafonts, Mont-ral and Farena, as well as the town of La Riba, known for its manufacture of quality paper.

WINE CULTURE AND THE CHARACTER OF THE COUNTRYSIDE

 

A hundred kilometres by car along this route, which takes you from Falset to Porrer through the heart of El Priorat, will make you a veritable wine connoisseur. Beginning in Falset, the county capital, head toward Gratallops and La Vilella Baixa, then onward to the Carthusian monastery of Scala Dei, built in a valley sheltered by the craggy slopes of Montsant Mountain. From there, you can continue to La Morera de Monsant or Poboleda. Both roads lead to Cornudella de Montsant, from where you can travel on to Siurana, the last redoubt of the Saracens in Catalonia. The landscape throughout the route is true wine country and, as such, is brimming with vineyards and wineries, which you will want to be sure to visit.

THE EXHILARATING SCENERY OF EL CAMP

 

Only a few short kilometres separate the towns of Salou and Cambrils if you follow the coast. To spice up the trip, try taking the 58-kilometre route by way of Reus and Escornalbou instead. After taking full advantage of Salou's magnificent beaches, head out of the city to PortAventura theme park, for which you will want to set aside an entire day. From there, continue on to Reus, the capital of Catalan Modernism, and the village of Alforja, where the painter Joaquim Mir once lived. The route continues through Riudoms and Montbrió, which is home to a world-class spa. Farther down the same road lie Riudecanyes and Vilanova d'Escornalbou. Be sure to stop off at the nearby Escornalbou castle monastery, whose lookout is an optimum place to stargaze on summer nights. The route continues to the town of Mont-roig del Camp, where the painter Joan Miró once spent his summers and where visitors today can tour the chapel of La Verge de la Roca (Our Lady of the Rock). On the coast, you can explore the holiday village of Miami Platja and the town of L'Hospitalet de l'Infant, which boasts a top-notch yacht club. On the way back north, near Cambrils, lies Samà Park, a lovely, sprawling garden with lush and varied plant life. The route ends in Cambrils, a seafaring town known for its excellent cuisine, where you can cap off the day with a delicious supper.
