Historical landmarks

Wander around this monastery founded by French monks from Provence, who established here the first charter-house on the Iberian peninsular.

El Calvari is an archaelogical site (7th-6th century BC)  which is within the municipal boundaries of the village of El Molar. This historically important site is hidden in woodland and is perched on the top of a small hill. 

Puig Roig is an archaelogical site (9th-7th century BC)  which is within the municipal boundaries of the village of El Masroig. This historically important site is hidden in woodland and is perched on the top of a small hill with views over the Siurana river and Montsant mountain range.

One of the best places to understand the immensity of the Priorat landscape is the Sant Pau (Saint Paul) hermitage. This hermitage is to be found one and a half km. north-east of the village of La Figuera.

"Mas de Sant Antoni" is to be found at the foothills of the Montsant mountain range near the village of La Morera de Montsant. You can get here by passing the Carthusian Monastery of Escaladei on a dirt track heading towards the mountain range. On the way, you will pass a building known as "La Pietat" which once belonged to the monastery and was used for monks who needed rest.  

Upon arriving at Siurana you will discover a small fairytale village that has a deep-rooted memory of endless sieges and improbable conquests. Perched on a rock in the river, Siurana was thought to be impregnable, above a reservoir of the same name.
