Costa Daurada - the golden coast - strechtes all the way from the golden, sandy beaches of Salou, Hospitalet del Infant and L'Ametlla de Mar to the beautiful lands of the Delta de l'Ebre Natural Park. It offers fantastic opportunities for kayaking and snorkeling, surprising the visitor with vivid marine landscapes and a rich wildlife that is hardly expected from the shore. Further inland, you will discover a natural landscape of great beauty and colour, made up of woods, vineyards, rocky mountains, rivers and enchanting small towns and villages, including thousand-year-old monasteries and prehistoric caves.
The impressive Serra del Montsant mountains in the county of Priorat rise majestically in a unique rocky relief scarred by gullies and ravines. In 2002 its 10,000 hectares were declared a Natural park and it is without a doubt the Costa Daurada's most emblematic mountain, both for its altitude (1,163m) and its natural heritage. The genet, the mountain cat, the ferret, the peregrine falcon or the golden eagle thrive in these lands. The beauty of the landscape is highlighted by the ruins of the 12th Carthusian monastery of Scala Dei, located at the foot of the Montsant.
