Visiting the Priorat with young children
At any time of year
The Priorat County or “comarca” offers a great variety of tours and activities for spending time with the family at any time of year.
Lead Mine and Museum
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.
In Porrera, adventurous visitors can swing from ropes and do balancing acts on walkways suspended from trees in the entertaining Parc Vies Altes.
In the northern part of the county, in Cornudella there is a reservoir which offers visitors the chance to row on Siurana lake.
In between Capçanes and Els Guiamets, we will be able to go kayaking or ride in a pedalo on the tranquil waters of the Guiamets reservoir. This artificial lake is located in a beautiful corner where the train line runs nearby.
