A cathedral of wine is a cooperative winery built in the Art Nouveau (Catalan Moderniste) style, approximately between 1910 and 1920. Cèsar Martinell (disciple of Antoni Gaudí) was the main architect who designed this type of construction.
This is a specific idea of the Art Nouveau style, in which aesthetics and functionality (form and function) go hand in hand. You can visit up to five of these wineries along this route - a must for lovers or architecture - especially Art Nouveau!
The route runs through five designations of origin (DO, similar to the French Aplellation d’Origine Controllée) for wine (Priorat, Montsant, Terra Alta, Conca de Barberà and Tarragona), two for olive oil (Siurana and Terra Alta) and one for hazelnuts (Reus).
