THE MONTSANT AND THE ESCALADEI CHARTERHOUSE

PRIORAT / PN de la Serra del Montsant
THE EXPERIENCE A spiritual and contemplative trip in nature. Look for peace and tranquillity in the stunning landscape of the Serra de Montsant Natural Park. Be transported by the unquestionable strength of its orography, where cliffs and rocks protect the interior of a magical territory as if a treasure hid in it. The interior is the mountain’s kingdom and in order to enter it is necessary to overcome the natural steps, such as horseshoe paths, aerial paths which are often awe-inspiring.

The spiritual relati onship that mankind has had with the Montsant for centuries has given this land a very special bond. This was one of the main reasons why the first Charterhouse, Escaladei -Scala Dei-, built in the Iberian Peninsula was in this environment, allowing the monks who sett led to live in the required silence and the intense Eremitic tradition, both being definitive proof of the symbolic value of this mountain.
