Riudecanyes, town of Baix Camp, is located in the interior of the region, between Argentera Mountain and Costa Dorada, 15 km from Reus.
This small municipality of just over 1,000 inhabitants became the capital of the Barony of Escornalbou, a jurisdictional territory created with the conquest of the Mountain of Escornalbou in the 12th century.
Nowadays Riudecanyes has several rural houses both in the village and in the surroundings, due to its proximity to the coast and the mountains, it is an ideal destination for those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the nearest cities. Its rural charm and natural surroundings offer the possibility of enjoying an interesting visit.
- Visit in Visitor Centre
- Visit in the village and the reservoir
We start in Fruits of Landscape Visitor Centre which brings us closer to the important agricultural activity in this area and to the world of olive oil. There, we also taste Escornalbou Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This centre, located in the former facilities of the Cooperative, exhibits an old oil mill and a hydraulic press, as well as an exhibition and audiovisuals. After visiting the centre, we move on and visit the village, whose streets have curious names: the days of the week. We also visit the renaissance Saint Mathew Church, which preserves magnificent sgraffitos at the vaults. Finally, we walk to the reservoir, located only 10 minutes from the church. This reservoir was one of the first ones built in Catalonia. We will learn about its construction and the natural environment that surrounds it.
