Why We Love This Hotel
- A farm in the foothills of Catalonian mountains where monks once cultivated their vines and orchards, Terra Dominicata has now been converted into a chic 5-star hotel
- The outdoor pool has views overlooking the hills of Monsant National Park
- The hotel has its own cellar where guests can learn how the Priorat wines are made
- The ancient Roman ruins of Tarragona, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are less than an hour's drive away
In the 12th century, the Carthusian monks founded their monastery just next to the Sierra del Montsant, in Catalonia's Priorat wine region. In summer 2018, it was converted into Terra Dominicata, a 5-star hotel and winery.
From the hotel, Tarragona -- where "Roman history collides with beaches, bars and a food scene that perfumes the air with freshly grilled seafood" (Lonely Planet) -- is just one hour-drive away.
The hotel’s terracotta buildings are lined with lofty cypress trees. The property has its own winery -- where you can have private tastings. There is also an olive grove and vegetable farm.
The outdoor pool has views overlooking the hills of Monsant National Park.
Alma Mater restaurant serves traditional Spanish cuisine.
The 26-room property spans two historic buildings with as much of the original architecture maintained as possible. Each room is uniquely decorated and has free Wi-Fi.
The property is adults-only.
