ROUTE CISTERCIAN LANDSCAPES
For centuries, the Cistercian monks left their mark on the management and exploitation of the interior lands on the Costa Daurada. The following route is one of the best proposals to discover unique lands with vineyards, but also with fields filled with cereals that, according to the time of the year, give you landscapes with seas of wheat and golden cereals.
From Nulles, take the route that will take you along inland roads towards Vila-rodona, Aiguamúrcia and Santes Creus, a small oasis rich in heritage and spots where the water of the Gaià leaves very unique postcard scenes. From here you can continue your journey to the Pont d'Armentera, to follow the road that will take you to Querol and Santa Coloma de Queralt.
The return will begin in the direction of Sarral, one of the towns that produce more wine and cava with the autochthonous variety of trepat, in fact, its oenological activity is well visible on all the roads that surround the town, which borders the Alt Camp with Cabra del Camp, to continue to retrace the road through Pla de Santa Maria, Vila-rodona and arrive, again, in Nulles.
