Conca de Barberà is an inland region half way between the sea and the mountain.  It's a place which people pass through and a crossroads.  It's the capital of our history and a mosaic of cultures.

The centre has it's office beside de Font Major cave, in an old distillery where alcohol was produced until the sixties when it was restored as an activity centre for the people of Epluga de Francolí.  You can do a great variety of tours from this town, located at the foot the Muntanyes de Prades.

Prior reservation is necessary.

The Conca de Barberà Burricleta Centre has its office in a former wine alcohol distillery in Espluga de Francolí near the town of Poblet and its surrounding woods.  It offers a variety of tours to discover its unique spots in a land overflowing with nature, history and authenticity.

The Bosc de Poblet forest was managed for 800 years by the monks of the monastary of the same name and today forms a magnificent nationally protected natural area, the Paratge Natural d'Interès Nacional de Poblet.  It has a wide variety of vegetation and fauna and greatly values its well preserved cultural and historic wealth.

This tour allows you to visit the old farms of the Monestir de Poblet de Milmanda i Riudballa monastary as well as the town of Vimbodí i Poblet, where you can go to the Museu del Vidre glass museum. 

During this tour you can get to know and visit some of the most emblematic farms of our region, as all were owned by the monks of the monastary from the 12th century.  There are however some references to them as being inhabited before this.  If you let your imagination go, you can relive some of the moments in history that have made a mark on us today.

Just before you get back to the starting point, the tour also brings you close to the Monestir de Poblet monastary.
