Re: Question about Priorat and Barcelona

I haven't plotted the wineries out on a map yet. Haven't gotten that far as I've been working offline on the La Rioja section of our trip. I was just hoping or assuming there might be at least a couple near Falset, mostly so that we could easily hit up Celler l'Aspic at lunch during our full day. Th...

Re: Question about Priorat and Barcelona

Thanks Darren & Jeff. I appreciate the information. Funny that you guys think 3 per day is ambitious. I thought of it more as a limit. My plan was definitely one in the morning, one in the afternoon, lunch between. I was treating the third as a bonus more or less. I think we've settled on Hotel Cal ...

Stay at the Sheraton. It’s 100m from the station.
I was staying at the Marriott only because I have a certificate for I believe at Cat 4 hotel (Marriott qualifies at 4) and the Sheraton is a Cat 5 property. I could burn points if you think it is well worth it.

It is a bit of an odd hotel. I'd only stay there again only if I needed to be near the airport for an AM flight (and wanted the points). That is precisely why we're doing this.
