Escornalbou castle and monastery

Escornalbou leads us into a time when the well-to-do bourgeoisie had a free hand to repair and restore historic buildings in order to turn them into residences. The building allows us to discover the atmosphere of a wealthy house in the early 20th century. The different rooms contain samples of the collections which the owner had put together on his travels. In the conversions some elements of the monastery of Sant Miquel d’Escornalbou such as the church and the cloister were preserved, though that was turned into a garden with one of the finest views of the Tarragona area.

This was the location for the filming of Antoni Ribas’ Terra de canons (1993).
