Route of the Toll de la Palla – Siurana River
We present an ideal route to take a bath and get one of the most beautiful pools (tolls) of the Siurana River. It is perfect to do with children and we can combine it with an oenological escape for the DO Montsant or the DOC Priorat.
Being a relatively short walk, it allows us to make the wine trip at the DO Monstant and visit some of the wineries in the nearby town of Cornudella del Montsant. If we prefer we can also visit DOC Priorat wineries approaching us to the town of La Morera del Montsant.
00′.The road begins in a very sharp curve at kilometer 3.5 of the road that goes up to the beautiful town of Siurana on the T-3225 road. There we have a parking lot for only two or three cars. Once we arrived at the place, we started walking along the track and overcame a barrier that cuts the cars.
10′. We walk about 10 minutes and we see on our left the road that is the Old Road to Siurana that goes up to the town. We continue straight.
25′.The road advances along the track bordering the base of the red mountain and the cliffs on which the village of Siurana rests.
45′. We leave the track and start down a very steep path with lots of loose stone to reach the Siurana riverbed. We will go up the river on its left side.
1h. The path separates a few meters from the river to soon approach again and before us appears the Toll de la Palla with its crystalline and not very cold waters. The area offers us the possibility to comfortably enjoy the area and to refresh ourselves.
We can also go a little further up the river to reach another ‘toll’ called the Toll de la Cinteta.
Note: The times are always approximate. Undertaking the route by yourself or doing so as part of a large group, can significantly change the sector times and the final total.
