Prades and Montsant Ranges

Set in the province of Tarragona, these Mediterranean mountain ranges are an interesting prospect for a day's birding trip from a nearby coastal resort, and could also be a first stop for birders flying into Reus.

It's an attractive area with a low population density, winding roads, picturesque villages on hillsides or even on cliffs, and wines and olive oil of its own special character.

Montsant would be an ideal site for birders interested in gastronomy and walking, especially for those who don't need snow-capped peaks.
