Priorat, in Tarragona Province probably produces the most exciting red wines in the whole of Spain. Yet an excursion to this scarcely populated corner of Catalonia brings further delights in addition to the fantastic bodega/ wine tasting visits.
You can visit the spectacular village of Siurana, the last place the Moors were expelled from in Catalonia, where the sheer rock faces were a natural defence.
Another option is Scala Dei, the fascinating remains of a Carthusian Monastery, at the foot of the imposing Montsant Natural Park.
Or if you fancy experiencing one of Catalonia's many festivals, visit the village of Prades, where once a year the baroque fountain spurts cava rather than for a day, for one and all to drink their fill during their yearly Festa Major.
