Rocallaura, the perfect place to disconnect from the world and connect with your family
Telecommuting, frustrated attempts at family conciliation, return to routine, stress, post-pandemic, and again lack of time to enjoy and share with your loved ones… We understand. You need a family getaway. But don't worry, don't stress even more thinking what to do or where to go. From Femturisme we bring you the perfect proposal: the ideal mix of family adventure, relaxation and disconnection, nature and hiking routes and culture to enjoy together. We are talking about the small town of Rocallaura, with just over 70 inhabitants and located in the Urgell region, in the province of Lleida, which invites you to get lost in the serenity and tranquility of all its corners.
HOW TO ENJOY THE REGION?
The Urgell region is an excellent point of interest for lovers of hiking and culture.
There are different options of routes, some of them sections of iconic routes such as the Camino de Santiago as it passes through Catalonia, or the Camino de San Ignacio with options to do on foot or by bicycle suitable for the whole family. In addition to these routes that we find in the region, the small town of Rocallaura is integrated into the Cistercian Route, a path that combines cultural tourism, active tourism and nature and that links the three most iconic and important Cistercian monasteries in Catalonia: the Santes Creus monastery, about 35 minutes by car from Rocallaura, the Poblet monastery, 25 minutes or the Vallbona de le Monges, just 10 minutes from the town.
In addition to these options to enjoy and connect with nature, Rocallaura and its surroundings offer you a beautiful and valuable cultural heritage. Authentic testimonies of the history of this place, such as the Iberian vestiges of the town of Estinclells de Verdú or the Iberian city Molí d'Espígol de Tornabous from which the little ones of the family can learn about the day-to-day life of the Iberians. In the area we also find Assets of National Interest such as the Torre Circular dels romans de Castellnou d'Ossós, the Castell de Verdú or the Castle of Montclar d'Urgell among many medieval vestiges present in the region and numerous charming towns where you can get lost and teleport in time.
Another excellent way to live and discover the region as a family is through the local gastronomy. Visiting producers is one of the most fun for the little ones, and even more if they can try and taste products such as cheese, nougats and neules so typical of this region, or olive oil with Les Garrigues Designation of Origin.
A PLACE TO REST FROM STRESS AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY
On the outskirts of Rocallaura, just about 15 minutes from the center we find the reference accommodation in the area: Iberik Rocallaura Balneari, located in the old Rocallaura spa, a building with more than 100 years of history and that the new Iberik Hotels group recently acquired.
The wonderful combination between the nature that surrounds all the equipment and its architecture, a mix between the traditional, preserving original elements of the first building, and the modern, since the equipment has been completely restored and refurbished to adapt to the current needs of visitors, turn the spa into a perfect paradise of serenity and calm in a magical setting.
