If you're interested in local culture, walk around the historic center of Valls or attend any of the meetings castellers that take place regularly in the capital of Alt Camp, the most important tradition of Tarragona and probably throughout the Catalan territory. If you love good wine, you can choose to visit a nearby winery ; and if you prefer walking and sport you can follow some of the marked trails on foot or by bike, or visit the Cistercian Route, full of monasteries recognized internationally.
Monastery of Santes Creus
Of the three Cistercian monasteries, Santes Creus is the one which most faithfully reproduces the Bernadi construction plan. Founded in 1150 and established in Santes Creus after 1160, it went through several glorious stages until the final secularization of the monks in 1835. It is now the only monastery of the Cistercian Route with no monastic life, which allows visitors to make themselves at home in all the nooks and crannies of this splendid monastery which retains the most vivid memory of its history in every stone.
