MODERNISM
ART

The cellar from l'Espluga de Francolí was named Catedral del Vi (Wine Cathedral) by the catalan writer Àngel Guimerà. This denomination was soon used for other cellars built at the beginning of the 20th century by architects such Cèsar Martinell, follower of Antoni Gaudí, and Domenech i Montaner and his son Pere Domènech Roura.

If you want to know more about modernism art and how it was applied to the wine-growing agro-industry, come and visit the cellars in l'Espluga de Francolí, Barberà de la Conca or Vila-rodona, a real work of art.

The cellar of l’Espluga de Francolí, known as the ‘Cathedral of Wine’ due to its monumental style, designed by the architect Pere Domènech Roura in 1912, is a perfect example of the purist modernist style which abounds in the cellars of the Conca de Barberà.
