Terra Alta

Is the land behind the Els Ports park. As the name suggests, it is fairly high up and it is a good wine growing region, if rather remote. Picasso lived in Horta St Joan for a time (his Blue period). Behind Horta are the wine growing towns like Gandesa, Batea, Bot & Pinell de Brai (Famous for it's Gaudi designed Cooperativa). Of these towns, Batea is my favourite. It has a lovely square and a cloistered street up to the church.

Out in the countryside, there are some wonderful views and lovely quiet roads that you can drive on for miles without seeing another car.
