Picture Postcard – Gratallops, Spain
The Priorat region of Spain has become known as a fine wine region.
Clos de L’Obac was one of the pioneering wineries back in the 1970s. The hilltop town of Gratallops is home to Cal Llop, a beautiful boutique hotel, and fine restaurants. Camins del Vi, a network of hiking trails pass through the red-rock hillsides. The Monastery of Santa Maria d’Escaladei is being restored and guided tours are available. All these made for a wonderful weekend away from the bustling Barcelona.
Welcome to a new series of travel postcards that I’ll be posting twice a week. Click on the card for a larger view.
