  • We hadn't planned to go here on our trip, but we're glad we did. Right after going to visit Cellers de Scala Dei, they recommended we check this place out, the view of the mountains nearby was lovely ...  more »
  • Best experience in spiritual level ever. In Escaladei you can feel the presence of god as in any other place. I was really surprised by the energy of the mountain and the architecture of the monastery...  more »
  • Interesting visit with very nice views to the mountains. Rebuilt with a wonderful taste, a really worth visit. You can understand perfectly the life of the monks there.  more »

  • 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.
