Priorat on foot

This is a charming shorter route, apt for all walkers and great for children. People say that the olive oil of this corner of the Montsant mountain range, that of La Bisbal, Margalef and Cabacés is of extraordinary quality and finesse.

This route is sponsored by the olive mill Cooperativa del Camp in la Bisbal de Falset

 

 

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.

The Carthusian monastery of Escaladei is set amidst the extremely beautiful Montsant mountain range with its spectacular craggy outcrops. The monastery’s surroundings form part of the Montsant Natural Park and are highly suited for excursions to discover more about our natural and cultural heritage

This route will take you to an old way, the cattle track of Les Taules, constructed for the livestock that where driven on their way to the village. The walls that delimited it can still be seen now. You can enjoy spectacular views from here on clear days. 

The municipal district of Capçanes, which belongs to the Priorat region, is located in one of the two areas which are richest in dry-stone constructions in Priorat (the other one is the area of Montsant river and the mountains surrounding it). In the area of Les Taules, situated to the East of the village centre, a wide variety of elements made of dry stone congregate in quite a limited space. 

The route starts in Capçanes (Comarca del Priorat) and will take you from the cool valleys to the peaks of Serra de Llaberia, where you will enjoy splendid views over a vast land, following the path of the guerilla fighter Carrasclet and other ancestral paths. 

A trail on the easternmost side of the Serra de Montsant, which enables the walker to get to know the different characteristics of the two sides of the mountain range easily in a single trip.

A trail through the western gullies of the Serra de Montsant, those that have been most shaped by human activity in the not too distant past. Recommended for those who want to enjoy historical and cultural heritage within a beautiful natural area.
