Cool down this summer with these refreshing ideas

Water to awaken the senses

Canoakayak recommends you a beautiful route that takes us to the Toll del Forn (pool), at the end of the Siurana reservoir, into which the River Siurana flows. There is a pebble beach, a small waterfall and a clean, fresh-water pool for swimming. Above the cliff, 250 meters above us, we can see the Salt de la Reina Mòra and the castle of Arab origin, as well as the Romanesque church of the village of Siurana.

The round-trip (5 km), if done at the walkers’ leisure, takes from an hour and a half to two hours, and is suitable for all walking levels.

Stay cool in Bellmunt's underground

Without a doubt, one of the most popular ones for little ones is a tour of the Bellmunt del Priorat Lead Mining Museum and Mines, a few kilometres from the capital of the county, Falset.

This mineral and metallurgical complex was once the most important in Catalonia in terms of lead ore extraction.

Visitors can explore the first underground gallery which was excavated in the 19th century. Accompanied by a guide, we can see replicas of miners working as well as visiting a modern exhibition area above ground, located in the old workshops where the mineral was processed.

Ah! Did you know that the mine's temperature is a constant 16 degrees all-year-round? That's why visiting it in the summer is an absolute pleasure!
