Monestir de Sant Salvador d'Horta is a monatery located in the surroundings of Horta de Sant Joan, a tiny town in Tarragona Region near Santa Barbara Peak. It was built from 12th to 14th Centuries and it is known by Sant Salvador, a monk, who made miracles. Nowadays you can visit the church, however the monastery is in ruins. Also, in the part well preserved, there is an exposition about the history of the monastery. Very interesting.
Moreover, it is possible from here to do a hikking to Santa Barbara Peak, from where you can see wonderful views of the Natural Park and surroundings. Very nice.

Beautiful, middle-age monastery (not inhabited any more) and church set in the countryside outside Horta de Sant Joan, at a lovely spot the foot of the mountains. Really worth a visit.

Lovely little church (Monastary of Sant Salvador d'Horta - but also known as the Convent of Sant Salvador) near the base of the Santa Barbara Mountains in Horta de Sant Joan - the town where Picasso spent some time as a youngster visiting a friend of his - and was inspired by the mountains - in developing his cubist style of painting. The church is no longer in service - but they do hold weddings and some special services from time to time. Spectacular views (perfect for those memorable photos). Worth visiting if in the area.

Best view to Horta

when you visit Horta you have to go to the monestir which is a very special place to be. You can explore the history of the templars as well as some art exicitions. On your way back to Horta make a short stay at the frame frome where you have a great look to the mountain and the monestir just like at Picassos picture.
