Tucked away on the boundary of Baix Camp and Priorat comarcas, on the north-eastern part of the country, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called C-242. With more than 100 turns, if you’re prone to car sickness, this drive is not for you.

Located between the Montsant range and the Prades Mountains, the pass is 21km (13.04 miles) long running south-north from Les Borges del Camp to Cornudella de Montsant. The road is steep in parts, hitting a 6-7% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
