The landscape of El Priorat, a candidate for UNESCO World Heritage status

3 DO in a small region

On 11 April 2012, the Parliament of Catalonia made a declaration of institutional support for the inclusion of El Priorat as a 'Mediterranean mountain agrarian cultural landscape in the UNESCO World Heritage list'. In February 2014, representatives of the Prioritat Association appeared before the Territory and Sustainability Committee in Parliament to inform it about the preparation of the El Priorat Landscape Charter and progress with El Priorat’s candidature to be declared an agrarian cultural landscape.

The aim of this candidature is to protect a landscape that has succeeded in energising 
an economy based on wine production and wine tourism. UNESCO’s global reach will help
 raise awareness of the values of El Priorat’s landscape and cultural heritage, 
as the Prioritat Association states.

El Priorat is home to two well-known designations of origin, DOQ Priorat and DO Montsant,
 as well as the DOP Siurana  for the olive oil.
