Med Pearls Project

Most models of tourism in the Mediterranean area are based on mass tourism and follow a fragmented vision of the region as a sum of different markets. Med Pearls aims at internationally positioning the Mediterranean as a unique and integral destination to experience the Med lifestyle through SlowTourism (ST), inviting travellers to discover sustainably and responsibly new destinations while taking time to have direct contact with local communities. The project will deliver a set of 26 new ST products created by local Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and ICT enterprises thanks to financial and technical support called Product Development and Innovation Facilities.

Les Garrigues in a Motorhome

If you dare to follow in the footsteps of the past, you’ll get to understand the present.

Itinerary

All year round

Arrival to the family-run Vinya els Vilars wine estate. Here you’ll stay at a well-equipped motorhome site amidst vineyards. Make the most of your time by having a chat with its lovely owners, enjoying the sunset and going for a stroll through this wonderful slice of peace and quiet. There are also cycling routes available if you fancy going for a ride.

You’ll head off to discover the origins of the Iberian civilisation. Just six kilometres away, you’ll find the Els Vilars Fortress, one of the most complete Iberian archaeological sites in the country.

Once the tour is over, you can go back to the motorhome. On your way back, we recommend paying a visit to the centre of Arbeca. Here you can buy local products at the town’s farmers’ co-op. If you wish, you could have lunch at a recommended restaurant bearing the local seal of quality.

Make the most of your time in Arbeca before heading back to the motorhome site. In Vinya els Vilars, as an option, you could take a guided tour of the winery and go wine tasting while you buy its wines.

The first stop will be La Floresta. Here, you’ll take a guided tour of a well-preserved 14th-century castle.
