About

Tarragona to Lleida

The twenty-first century, a Roman emperor and a gladiator walk the streets of Tarragona. A visit to the architectural spaces of ancient Tarraco marks the start of a journey that will take us to the banks of the Ebre, the great river of the peninsula as we follow its course to the delta, one of the most bio-diverse sites in the country. We will pedal along a rail road converted to a green route and follow in the footsteps of Picasso and Gaudí. The legends of Montsant and the excellent wines of Priorat will be the opening acts for the monastic silence of the Cistercian Route and Lleida, the capital of Terra Ferma.

Itinerary

All year round

The streets of Picasso’s youth reveal an intimate version of Barcelona, featuring charming small businesses. A city that has always been linked to art, in all its forms. The day begins with some of the most beautiful modernist buildings in Europe and ends at Montserrat, Catalonia’s most iconic mountain.

We enter in Terres de l’Ebre, a territory declared a Biosphere Reserve due to its valuable natural spaces, its human heritage and its commitment to sustainability.

We start the day listening to the birdsong of the Delta de l’Ebre, one of the most important wetlands in Europe, then continue to Tortosa and ended the day in search of Picasso.

The views of the Els Ports Natural Park accompany us on our cycling tour along the Val de Zafán Greenway, as we visit the Cathedrals of Wine and kayak on the waters of the River Ebre.

Small country roads take us through the villages of the Priorat district, whose land, as beautiful as it is rugged, produces some of Catalonia’s finest wines.

The echoes of the legend of Sant Jordi guide our steps as we walk along the walls of Montblanc before experiencing the famous peace of the Poblet monastery. The day is completed by visiting our cave-dwelling ancestors at L’Espluga de Francolí.

We will arrive in Lleida province and visit the medieval village of Guimerà. We will then enter the cloister of Vallbona de les Monges, before stopping to taste some olive oil from Les Garrigues and taking a walk around the Ivars i Vila-sana pool. Finally, the route will end with views from La Seu de Lleida (the Old Cathedral).
