This was such an inspiring view into the past! I've been telling every sommelier I know - go to Priorat for the wines (of course) but MAKE SURE you also visit the Cartoixa, the remains of the monastery around which Priorat was founded. The Carthusian monks believed in solitude and silence and lived most of their lives alone in cells with a small courtyard garden where they could grow vegetables for themselves and the community. During the visit you get to walk through these living quarters and catch a glimpse into what their lives must have been - fascinating (but watch out for the human skull!) I also tell everyone I know (sommeliers and even non wine lovers) to plan a visit to at least one winery in Escaladei. Me personal favorite is the Conreria, it's a little bit off-the-beaten path and they are famous for their incredíble white wines in this land of reds - worth a visit!

Visit for 30 minutes or three hours, there’s no excuse to come to Priorat and not visit this site. Best of all, you can easily wrap it into a visit to Celler de Scala Dei. Incredible experience with next to no effort.

Our guide took us here and gave us the history and showed us the ruins. Enjoyed. Then went for wine tasting at their winery. She was very interesting and enjoyed the wines!

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.
