GR 174: Transmitter del Priorat (Priorat Trail) Back
The Priory is a very mountainous country between the structured sedimentary Serra la Llena in the north and the existing limestone Vorküstenbergland in the south. Both mountain areas are relatively young and therefore very rugged, with areas that are hardly eroded.
In contrast, the majority of the county of - except the Montsant in the north and a few limestone regions in the extreme south - geologically very old (Paleozoic) and the millions of years during which these mountains were exposed to the weather, led to this gentle relief.
The bottom of the acreage of the priory consists largely of disintegrated slate (Licorela) and causes together with the particular climatic conditions that here one of the wines with the highest alcohol content is cultivated worldwide.
The graceful hills and deep valleys are well worth seeing especially for nature lovers. The GR 174, which was previously known as GR 7-4, is a compound of the GR 7 with its variant GR 7-1. He makes it possible to walk through almost all the villages of the Priory, through which the GR 7 does not. It begins near the Coll de la Teixeta and ends in the Serra del Montsant Major.
