If you are a history buff, Cartoixa is a must. Choice of location, the time period, the architecture and locale all make for an out of the way, but worthwhile excursion.

Very nice ruins to visit with rooms set up representing original uses. Very reasonably priced. Only 3,50 Euros or 2,50 Euros for seniors or children.

The location of the whole facility by itself is breathtaking, with all the vineyards and olive-plantations around, and the limestone amphitheater of Priorat just gently curving around in the background. The site is very well maintained, and you will find detailed information along the route...More
