Detailed description Also in other languages:

Priorat is a comarca (county) in Catalonia. The central part of the comarca, "Priorat històric," produces the famous and prestigious wine of the Denominación de Origen Calificada Priorat. Wines from elsewhere in the comarca are denominated as Montsant.

Priorat had a steady loss of population during the 20th century, but has recently as of 2004 experienced a more prosperous economy, resulting in an end to this trend. In 2001, the population was 9,196, with only the capital (Falset) exceeding a population of 1,000.

Physical geography

Priorat has an area of 496 km2 and is bordered by the River Ebro, and by the comarques of Baix Camp, les Garrigues, and Conca de Barberà. In the extreme north of the comarca is the Montsant mountain range; the south is bordered by the Mola de Colldejou and the mountain ranges of Llebaria and Santa Marina.

The climate is continental: dry and hot in summer, cold in the winter.
