  • Visit for 30 minutes or three hours, there’s no excuse to come to Priorat and not visit this site. Best of all, you can easily wrap it into a visit to Celler de Scala Dei. Incredible experience...  more »

  • Worth the visit- These old ruins were very cool. The drive up was just magical and serene. It’s about €3.50 to enter and you are free to walk around, check it out and take photos. There are informative panels all over explaining what happened to this monastery and showing you where things used to be. Definitely a cool experience and would highly suggest it!
  • Here one can see the ruins of an old monastery from the same order as the ones in Poblet and Santes Creus. The difference is that this one is located in a very unique and remote place. There is a parking lot at the entrance, where one can park and a small entrance fee is required to help with restoration work and maintenance of the area. Definitely worth visiting it.
  • Quiet ruins of a monastery. Worth a visit in the area.
  • If you are keen on the history of the places you visit, this monastery shouldn’t be overlooked. In a nutshell, Cartoixa d’Escaladei is a cradle of Priorat’s winemaking history since the Carthusian monks brought the winemaking knowledge and techniques to the region in the 12th century. The order lived and ruled over the region for more than 600 years until they were forced to leave the monastery. The monastery is being renovated and now you can visit restored monks’ cells, dining room and a beautiful cloister. And right after the visit go for a wine tasting in Cellers Scaladei.
  • Peaceful place with nice views and great history. Definitely worth visiting
