¬°Discover the town that is in the Top 10 of the most beautiful towns in Catalonia!






In the Priorat region, in Tarragona, there is another high altitude town: Siurana,  737 meters above sea level , on top of a limestone cliff, presiding over the river and the swamp that bears its name, in the  Montsant mountains.  and the  Prades mountains . 

Precisely because of this strategic location, for centuries it was the front line defense of Islam. Its  Moorish castle was the last Muslim stronghold  conquered by Christians in Catalonia in 1153. From that epic conquest, many legends emerged, such as that of  Moroccan Queen.

Today it has become one of the  best places in the world to practice sport climbing . In addition to the excellent views offered by its viewpoint of the entire area, the few and narrow cobbled streets and the stone houses of Siurana take you back in time. The  Romanesque church of Santa Maria stands out , built between the 12th and 13th centuries, and perfectly preserved.
