The village

Les Voltes is located in one of the most emblematic squares of a beautiful yet little-known village called Barberà de la Conca, less than a minute's walk from the local shop, the chemist´s, the bank, the baker´s, the butcher´s, the castle, and the church. The village is located on a hilltop with stunning views of the countryside dotted with vineyards and cornfields. Barberà has a village cafè, which is open all year round, and two restaurants: La Marinada and Portal Dinou. The village also has a quiet outdoor swimming pool with plenty of grass and shade that opens from the last week of June to mid September. 

Barberà, with its narrow, hilly streets dotted with shady squares and overlooked by a Knights Templar castle dating from the 12th century, is set on a hill with views over vineyards with the Conca de Barberà denomination of origin.The village was under the protection of the Knights Templar until the order was dissolved in 1312, at which point the Temple was granted to the Knights Hospitaller. The village also has an impressive neo-Classical church with some Romanesque features and is home to the oldest wine cooperative (read more) in Catalonia (founded in 1894). The "new" cooperative was designed by the architect Cesar Martinell, disciple of Gaudi, and is one of the many so-called "wine cathedrals" in the area.
