Castle-Monastery of Escornalbou (Riudecanyes)
A castle that is peculiar, to say the least, from a time in which the wealthy bourgeoisie acquired historic buildings and adapted them to their tastes to make them their homes. Eduard Toda rehabilitated a monastery founded in 1153, with excellent views of the surrounding area. So, Sant Miquel d'Escornalbou is part early 20th century manor house and partly the remains of a remarkable religious building.
Iberian Settlement in Calafell
There are not many places where you can stroll around a reconstruction of an Iberian settlement “in situ”. Following meticulous research, the archaeologists here have reproduced the walls, streets and houses that stood here between the 6th and the 1st centuries BC.
Castell del Vi Wine Centre (Falset)
A modern centre set in an old building – the castle of The Counts of Prades in Falset – where you can take a journey through the culture of Priorat wine. Audiovisual presentations, large panels and even a tasting room in which you can put your palate to the test, make for an entertaining visit that is suitable for all ages.
Escaladei Carthusian Monastery (La Morera de Montsant)
Located in a unique setting, Escaladei (12th century) was the first Carthusian monastery in the Iberian Peninsula and is a must for all visitors to Priorat. Even though much of the original monastery is now in ruins, you can still get an idea of the splendour of the place from its three cloisters, one of which is fully restored, its church, refectory, a cell that has been thoroughly reconstructed... You can also take advantage of your visit here to explore the surrounding countryside.
Pere Mata Institute (Reus)
Designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, this psychiatric hospital, considered to be one of the jewels of European Modernisme, is located about 10 minutes drive from the centre of Reus. The magnificent “Pavilion of the Distinguished” is the only part of the ensemble that is open to visits and cultural events, and preserves all of its spectacular original decor (stained glass, ceramics, mosaics, furniture ...). The guided tour is free and lasts approximately 40 minutes
Royal Monastery of Santes Creus
Unlike the Monastery of Poblet, Santes Creus has been uninhabited for some decades now. But that does mean that visitors can enter all of its spaces, some of which have been turned into museum exhibits. This is a beautiful monastery, whose cloister is a perfect example of the transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic style and which boasts exquisitely detailed capitals. The church, which contains the tombs of a number of Kings of the Crown of Aragon, is another highlight of the visit.
