  • They have recently cleaned, cleared and consolidated the Church and the refraction and opened the reconstruction of the cloister have small (an interesting accelerated video shows the work of reconstruction), there is much work to be done but worth the visit and the environment in spring is gorgeous

  • Although there are only the ruins of what was, the guided tour allows you to get an idea of what came to be. Recommended

  • Gorgeous views, tastefully preserved ruins, good signage in English as well as Spanish and Catalan. Not too expensive.
  • You moved to the time in which the monks colonized the Priory and shows in these photos their houses 700 mtr2 and its private gardens of the same measure. The truth is that I loved it.

  • Walk through Escaladei and you will discover that of Provence arrived in the 12TH century the monks of the order of the Charterhouse to build a monastery, thus founding the first Carthusian monastery of the Iberian Peninsula. They chose a unique landscape, framed by the mountains of Montsant, where a pastor had dreamed a few angels who ascended to Heaven by a ladder resting on the trunk of a pine tree, hence Escaladei or "ladder of God".

  • Impressive ruins of which was the first Iberian Peninsula Carthusian monastery. The restoration is very interesting and does not interfere in that romantic ruin look so attractive that it takes the place. The guide was very interesting, so I recommend you take the guided tour. The documentary film is completely soporific.
