What to expect

Enjoy a day around hidden sites in the province of Tarragona, a short drive from Barcelona. On this tour you will be picked up at 8:00 am in Barcelona city center and drive south in comfortable minivan with Wi-Fi included. Your first stop will be in the Medieval town of Montblanc where you will walk around the old streets of this beautiful town originated in the 12th century, surrounded by the well-preserved Medieval walls and watchtowers and visit the place where Sant Jordi (Saint George) supposedly killed the dragon and saved the princess.

Following you will be driven to the Royal Abbey of Santa Maria of Poblet, UNESCO World Site, founded by Cistercian monks from France on land conquered by the Moors. Poblet was the royal pantheon of the kings of the Crown of Aragon since James I of Aragon. Peter IV of Aragon, in the 14th Century, made it a condition, under solemn oath at the moment of crowning, that all the Catalan-Aragonese kings be buried there. Within the Monastery facilities, the monks manage a lodging house and a restaurant where they will serve you heavenly food with fresh ingredients grown locally.

After lunch, Your final stop will be Siurana, a tale of a village located in an unassailable position over the river where knights of four counties were needed to conquer it. It was finally conquered by the Moors in 1153 and was the last bastion of the reconquest of Catalunya. If you look over the cliff, you will guess why it was not conquered in three hundred years. There you can still find the footprint of the horseshoe that was left when the last Moorish Princess jumped over the cliff riding on the back of her horse. After your day exploring the surrounding areas of Barcelona, you will be returned to your pick-up destination in the city center, typically around 19.00pm.
