    Things to do

    -Natural scenery. One of the great things about Terra Alta is the amount of variation in the landscape. The famous Ebro River passes by this area to the north and west and is a majestic sight in its own right. As you head south the terrain becomes dramatic, with rocky mountains that have been shaped by the wind, steep gorges and deep valleys negotiated by mountain goats.

    -Activities. Thirteen different cycling trails can be followed in the Terra Alta area alone, guiding you through forest, over tall hills and past attractive hilltop towns like Horta de Sant Juan. An interesting route for both walkers and cyclists is the Via Verda, which follows the course of a former railway line, passing through gorges and providing rest stops at five former stations in Terra Alta.

    -Heritage and attractions. In Benifallet to the east of Terra Alta is the fascinating Cueva Meravelles, which is more than 500 metres in length and full of interesting geological features like Stalagmites and Stalactites. In the Horta area is the beautiful renaissance Hermitage of Santa Barbara, which can be reached from the town via vineyards and sits in the shadow of a craggy peak.

    -Gastronomy. Away from the coast, Catalan cuisine in these upland regions is based on a wide variety of meats. There’s wild boar stew, or rabbit simmered in rice and served with allioli. You could also try a local variety of paella, cooked with vegetables grown in the region. Terra Alta olive oil is of such high quality that is protected by a designation of origin, while the wines produced locally tend to be bold, fruity reds.

    -Day trips. Within a comfortable drive you’ll be able to reach a great variety of places. There’s Tarragona, full of interesting Roman history. To the southeast is Deltebre, the delta of the Ebro River, famous for its abundant birdlife and rice paddies. Costa Dorada beaches are less than 45 minutes away, as is the fantastic theme park Port Aventura, considered by many to the best in Spain.
