Description

Enjoy this day in the province of Tarragona, just 2 hours drive from Barcelona. Walk around the old cobblestone streets of the beautiful medieval city of Montblanc. Originally from the 12th century, this city is surrounded by well-preserved medieval walls and watchtowers dating from the 14th century. You will discover the place where Sant Jordi (Saint George) would have killed the dragon and saved the Princess. After enjoying the flavour of this city, you go to class, royal of Santa Maria de Poblet Monastery to world heritage of the UNSESCO. This masterpiece of the early Gothic art has played an important role in the Catalan and Spanish history. The Cistercian Abbey is one of the most important in Spain. This monastery, at the same time, austere and majestic, contains the pantheon of the Kings of Catalonia and Aragon. The monks are a hostel where they serve the food divine prepared with fresh produce grown on-site. After lunch, you will drive to Siurana, this village was deemed impregnable by geography. Finally, it was conquered by the Moors in 1153, it was the last bastion of Catalonia. If you look at the cliff, you can guess why it has not been conquered in three hundred years. You will find the footprint of the iron horse which was left the horse of the last Moorish Princess. In late afternoon you'll have time to enjoy the panoramic views offered by Siurana.

Jérémie

Une journée pour découvrir la Catalogne médiévale avec les visites de la ville de Montblanc, le monastère de Poblet (patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO) et le magnifique village de Siurana. Marta est très accueillante. Nous avons beaucoup appris sur la culture et l'histoire de la Catalogne. Lorsque vous venez à Barcelone, prenez un jour pour sortir de la ville. Il y a beaucoup de trésors à découvrir en Catalogne.
