Priorat Cycling & Hiking
A glimpse of the PRIORAT Wine Region….
Priorat is one of the only 2 wine regions in Spain with the highest quality certification. It’s located 2hrs south of Barcelona. It’s known for its world-class wines but there is a lot more to discover! The hilly orography is full of windy roads through the vineyards with no traffic and spectacular views.
There are no big cities or major highways nearby which has maintained its isolated, untouched & authentic life. You’ll find many quaint villages where life hasn’t changed much the last few decades focused mainly in the grape, olives and almonds farming. Yet, we will be able to find great food and meet extraordinary people who are building amazing creative projects with amazing stories.
The landscape combines the steep Llicorella (local rock) hills where nothing but the vineyards grow and the gorgeous features of Montsant Natural Park & red soiled Prades Mountains. It’s definitely a cycling paradise not yet ‘discovered’ and an incredible place for wine, food and authentic culture experiences.
