  • Actually not the place we were looking for but glad we found it. Great views and location. We took the hard route up the mountain there are easier routes. Very interesting place well restored. Sadly w...  more »
  • Former Monastery recovered by E. Toda (like Poblet) and after several owners became public lyposing. Audiovisual and Guided Tour. There is very little left of the Monastery and the Castle. It is mostly the result of the adaptation of the Toda era, taking advantage of the historical to make it habitable.

  • The truth is that you are going to visit a castle /monastery and you find yourself with the visit of the house of a proman of Reus ( Eduard Toda ) who bought what was left of the castle and made his house with the remains. Interesting and well explained visit by the guide. Exceptional panoramics- Fificuldes in the accesses

  • Fantastic castle and brilliant scenery! Worth the drive inland.
  • Pretty good, I recommend you paying for the visit.
  • Sorrounded by ancient history, mystery and a deep sense of mysticism, this impressive landmark sits at the top of a mountain thus offering splendid 360° views.
  • Beautiful panoramic view after a steep climb to the top
  • The Castell Monestir d'Escornalbou is a mountain monastery and stands in the summit area of the mountain Santa Bàrbara and can be reached from the coast in approx. 20 min (by car). On the highest point of the mountain stands the Hermitage of Santa Bàrbara. The mountain belongs to the Serra de l'Argentera (province of Tarragona). Guided tours are offered at a price of 2,50€ per person. However, this tour is only available in Catalan or Castilian. Guided tours in English are not offered. Toilets are available. In any case, it is worth coming here in good weather, as one has a wonderful view from here.
