Take a step back in time in this area of Priorat, when the banks of the great Siurana River saw the settling of a people on the peak of the nearby hill. They were probably the first miners of today’s county and lived here some three thousand years ago. We suggest you went on a simple stroll to discover this fantastic spot. It is ideal for exploring with children and the walk can be extended if you leave from the village and take the paved farm track which leads to Les Pinyeres hermitage and Siurana River.
The route begins next to the Cooperative building (WP1). As far as the Coll Major it is waymarked as a GR (in red and white paint). Take the Horta path, paved and enclosed between stone walls, leading to the river Cortiella. Cross the river (WP2) and go uphill along the farm track.
This circular route is an interesting proposal for experienced walkers, although, we also recommend you do it over two days. For those who are looking for a shorter route, the Falset to Gratallops path is a good alternative which takes around 3 hours.

These trails are an invitation to people to walk the villages, which are so close to the county of Ribera d’Ebre. Here, the Siurana River is on its way to join the larger, Ebre River, where vineyards and olive groves have shared the stage with lead mines and galena for centuries.
