Wine routes: camp de Tarragona

From the amphitheatre to the winery
Tarragona
The regions of the Camp de Tarragona constitute the basis for this route. A region that concentrates most of the cooperative wineries of Catalonia.

Here we see several "wine cathedrals" such as those of L'Espluga de Francolí, Rocafort de Queralt, Barberà de la Conca and Nulles. To this group we must also add the "wine cathedrals" of Priorat (Cornudella de Montsant and Falset) and Terra Alta (Pinell de Brai and Gandesa).
 
TRADITION AND INNOVATION

To these well known wineries others, such as that of the Sindicat Agrícola de Vila-Rodona, that of Pla de Santa Maria, Santes Creus and Aiguamúrcia must also be added. The façade of this last one evokes the rural Catalan architecture in the form of a large country manor house. Inside, we can see the traditional features, such as the wooden trusses that support the roof, and other innovative elements, such as the parabolic arches on both sides.
 
THE CISTERCIAN AND ROMAN TRACK

Well worth visiting is the Cistercian Monastery of Santes Creus, where the remains of King Peter the Great lie, or the old town of Alcover, with its ancient portals and walls.

There is also evidence of the Roman past, as can be seen in the Villa of Centcelles, the amphitheatre of Tarragona or the so-called "long vault", a spectacular barrel vault, 93 metres long, which could have been a public agricultural store (horreum) and which is located under the street known today as "Carrer de l'Enrajolat".
 
A WALK THROUGH THE MODERNIST TARRAGONA


If you are interested in Modernisme, in the city of Tarragona you will find the Teatro Metropol, adapted by the architect Josep Maria Jujol and the Mausoleu de Jaume I, designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Outside the city are also Modernista traces - beyond the wineries- in the Modernista sanctuary of Montserrat de Montferri.

If you visit Tarragona in spring, you must visit the Tàrraco Viva Festival and do not leave without sampling a good "calçotada" (typical roasted spring onions with romesco sauce) in Valls!
