The Prades region of Tarragona is a quiet, off-the-map kind of destination that offers a wonderful and relaxing escape into the mountains. The gorgeous scenery is perfect for a road trip - winding roads lead past historic mountain chapels, fascinating monasteries, and rustic Catalan villages. Along the way, you'll also stop at scenic lookouts, secretive swimming holes, and more than a few fantastic restaurants serving up the best of the regional cuisine.
This exciting trip into the mountains is perfect for those looking for something less touristy and more local, with plenty of opportunities to jump out of the car and explore the historic sights!
