Conca de Barberà is an area with a great winemaking tradition, thanks to its location and its land. To understand the present we have to take a leap into the past, and the evolution of viticulture in Conca de Barberà has been closely linked to the historical evolution of the region. Let’s go back to the Middle Ages, when two institutions, the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Santa Maria de Poblet and the warrior monks of the Templars, passed on their knowledge and experience to the farmers in order to cultivate the vineyards and extract the best wines.
The Costa Daurada is culture, history, nature and much more. At the architectural level, however, it is essential to mention the Wine Cathedrals that form part of the most remarkable heritage of the winemaking tradition of the territory.
It's a hot summer day and the body is asking for action, you and the whole family. Do not stay like lizards in the sand of a beach: the Costa Daurada (Golden Coast) offers refreshing fun for all ages. Attention, you are about to fall on top of a cascade of activities in the main theme park of the country! Welcome to PortAventura!
Costa Caribe Aquatic Park is the world that you will look for first on the map of PortAventura. You will glide past the famous King Khajuna - Europe's longest free-fall water slide -, you will jump through the crazy water spouts of Cookie Key, and sail through the raging waters of the Crazy River like a pirate. It is a huge water park next to the most spectacular attractions in Europe. Of course you can enjoy one of the classics of PortAventura, like the Tutuki Splash, where water wars are a tradition!
In addition, the Cirque de Soleil returns to deploy this summer its tent in PortAventura with an exclusive show. It is 'Amaluna', the story of a mysterious island ruled by goddesses and guided by the lunar cycles. It is a great love story.
The summer closes in PortAventura with the White Flower Power Night, a party less suitable for families with small children. The park and all the attractions open until 4 in the morning and there are music and DJ sessions to brighten an evening party of great proportions.
Calafell is a good place to spend a quiet holiday or even a rest period in your life. This was already clear to the people of these lands a few millennia ago. Here was one of the main Iberian settlements of the peninsula around 500 b.C. They belonged to the tribe of the cosetanos, today honored every summer in the festival Ibercalafell, the Festival of the Iberian Land. It discloses the world of the Iberians between children and adults and is celebrated during the first half of August.
One of the activities of the festival proposes to look for in the forest any element that can be turned into painting to design your own Iberian dress. In the old center, representations of the time are made while in the Iberian Citadel, on the outskirts of the town, most of the workshops are done: bread making, coin minting, the oldest trades of these lands, informative talks ... The festival closes with a night of fire, an everyday element of the Iberians and at the same time an omnipresent element in the rituals of this civilization.
The convent of Bellpuig, the monasteries of Poblet, Santes Creus, or Vallbona de les Monges converted into a musical stage of exception. Can you imagine? It has been a reality for years thanks to the cycle of concerts on the Cistercian Route, which take place on summer nights in these spaces full of history.
The program usually mixes several musical styles: jazz, pop, gospel or classical music. A string quartet playing within the walls of the monastery of Santes Creus does not sound the same as in a concert hall. The experience of the Cistercian concerts - they are every Saturday night - is also suitable for children and if they are under 7 years old, admission is free. You can reserve the tickets and consult the schedule of this cycle of concerts of the Costa Daurada (Goledn Coast) on their website.
