“In Priorat – as explained by Rafael López-Monné and Toni Orensanz in the guide ‘On foot through the wine and oli Priorat ‘’(Arola Editors) – the paths taste like wine and oil. The cobblestones, polished with horseshoes and espadrilles, still keep the mules sound, the tranginers’ wrecks, the Carthusians’ psalms, the lad’s songs… This is a territory rich in paths and stories. “
Strolling along the Priorat’s paths means to deepen into these stories. It means to trace the footsteps of the ancient settlers of the region, on the banks of the great Siurana, about three thousand years ago. It means to get lost by spiritual paths like those that take you to the Consolation hermitage, an extraordinary viewpoint of the lands that are part of the DOQ Priorat. There, one can make out wine paths that show you the geological contrasts between slates, sandstone and limestone, whose beat cannot be overlooked. In Vilella Alta, in Falset and in Gratallops. But also in Porrera, Torroja and Poboleda.
If you want to wander along the Priorat on foot and discover this land without haste, the website www.turismepriorat.org suggests you up to eight different routes of wine paths. To get lost and enjoy them.
