Albarca is a small village which forms part of Cornudella de Montsant. It has an interesting Romanesque church and also a guest house and mountain shelter. The "Festa Major" is the 15th August.
Siurana is also part of Cornudella de Montsant. It has two restaurants, a hotel, two country guest houses, a bar, a camp-site and an official mountain shelter.
Amongst other points of interest, there is the Romanesque church of Santa Maria. It is a beautiful example of Romanesque architecture which was built between the 12th and 13th centuries after the arrival of Berenguer IV troops in 1153. At that time, Siurana was an important stronghold in the line of defence between the Moorish and Christian kingdoms and in fact was the last stronghold to fall in Catalonia. The church displays a perfectly conserved Romanesque sculpted doorway. The building is usually locked, but can by visited by phoning (+34) 977 821 450.
In the former priest's house, there is a small museum with diverse objects, found in the village, posters of the "Jubileu" and paintings of the hamlet (normallly this is closed. Visits may be requested (+34) 977 821 450).
Siurana also conserves remains of the Moorish castle, the military buildings or "hisn” which were built around 9th century as a control centre. They belong to an extensive territory dominated by the Moors and located in a strategic position of defence at the entrance to the village. The conquest of this castle by Ramon Berenguer IV was planned before those of Tortosa and Lleida, but was not completed until 1153.Once conquered, it was passed to Bertran de Castellet and later on to Albert de Castellvell. It served as dowry for the Catalan royalty, to guarantee pacts amongst other functions.
The "Salt de la Reina Mora" or Moorish Queen's Last Leap is a famous cliff, made so by the last Moorish Queen Abdelazia, daughter of the Valí de Siurana. The legend tells that when the Christian troops took Siurana, the Queen preferred to cast herself and her horse off the cliff to their death rather than fall into the hands of the enemy. The horse, people say, tried to stop itself from falling over the precipice, but its efforts were in vain. Nowadays visitors can see the deep hoof print in the rock at this emblematic site.
Siurana offers wonderful views towards it internationally famous rock-climbing areas as well as glorious views over the Montsant Natural Park.
