One of the most spectacular routes around the Priorat region. It takes you to the villages in the heart of the county and around the Montsant mountain range.

This route starts off on fairly flat land towards Gratallops. Once we get to this village, we climb up to the Consolació hermitage passing by the village of La Vilella Alta. We then continue onwards towards Escaladei on a path which is very up and down. Once we get to the Carthusian monastery of Scala Dei, we start to climb on a track which takes us below the cliff-face of the Montsant mountain range. The views here are fantastic! To end this route, we descend a path which takes us back to La Vilella Baixa.
