The cooperative winery of L’Espluga de Francolí was designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner and built in 1913 by his son, Pere Domènech i Roure, also an architect. The Catalan writer Àngel Guimerà called it "The Cathedral of Wine", a name that was later applied to other Modernist cooperative wineries in Catalonia. It now houses a wine museum that is divided into three levels. In the cellar you can see the history, cultivation methods and traditional winemaking techniques; the second level explains modern winemaking and the third level tells you about the building’s Modernist architecture. The tour includes three audiovisuals. The museum shop sells wine, cava, olive oil and nuts.
