The City Councillors of Culture and Tourism of Vandellòs Town Hall and the Hospitalet de l'Infant have organised several guided visits to the heritage this summer.
Tivissa, in the inland, on the way to the Ebro River, has a rich history and genuine character. The old town is very charming and it is very well preserved. Its interlaced streets and lanes, full of charm and mystery, are the gates for the fortress. The 500 year old citadel, the market place, where public judgments were held, and the old castle are some of the most characteristic spots in this medieval village. Its outskirts have, as well, a strong personality and there are interesting places in terms of history, such as, the Iberian settlement in Castellet de Banyoles, spot from where the Iberians watched over the Ebro River.
Llaberia is a delightful village worth a visit, although getting there, will take some patience. It belongs to the council of Tivissa and it is currently scarcely populated, but, far from being abandoned. Most of the houses are perfectly preserved and inhabited during certain seasons of the year. This typical rural village made its living from the exploitation of the mountain until 50 years ago. Its medieval origin can be traced in the church and in the rest of the village. It is pure Mediterranean Mountain.
Darmós, on the way to the Priorat region, depends on the council of Tivissa. It is mainly agricultural and its wines have the denomination of origin Montsant and are good, prestigious and well known. We suggest a visit to the wineries to see how the wine is made.
La Serra d’Almos, on the way to the Priorat region, is a village that depends on the council of Tivissa. It is mainly agricultural and its wines have the denomination of origin Montsant and are good, prestigious and well known. We suggest a visit to the wineries to see how the wine is made.
