Festivities

The main village festivity is held on 4th and 5th August in honour of St. Dominic, with races, recitals, competitions, dances and traditional games.

On the occasion of Our Lady of August, on 15th and 16th August there is a procession to the chapel of Maria Assumpta.

The second or third Saturday in September sees the Festa del Vi i de la Verema a l’antiga (Wine and old-fashioned grape harvest festival). This celebrates the harvest, with trips to the vineyards, visits to wineries and a wide range of activities.

Places to visit

The church of Sant Pere (St. Peter), also dubbed the cathedral of the Priorat due to its size, dates from the 18th century.

To the west of the village, beside the river Siurana, are the remains of the Molí dels Frares or Molí Draper, formerly owned by the monastery of Scala Dei to serve the wool business set up by the monks. Poboleda was in fact the place where the Carthusian monks lived while their monastery was being built.

Other spots worth mentioning include the Font del Mingot with its spring and picnic area, the chapel of Maria Assumpta with its recreation area and the Casa dels Frares (Friars' House), today the town hall.

The village has several family wineries that can be visited (see visiting times and conditions in Related Content).
