Barberà de la Conca gives its name to the county, la Conca de Barberà. It offers visitors the charm of a small village that occupies the south slope of a hill that is dominated by the Barberà Castle, an essential visit. Here the streets, steep and narrow, take us back to other times;its magnificentpanoramic over the county invite us to enjoy the rest and remind us of its strategic importance during medieval times, and the passing of the River Anguera,a tributary of the River Francolí,give us the gift of water that springs from many fountains and wells.

The modernist cellar is a historic monument, declared  a Site of National Cultural Interest. It was built between 1920 and 1921 by the architect Cèsar Martinell Brunet (except the water tank, which was built in 1929), commissioned by the viticulture section of the Barberà Agricultural Union, with the economic aid of the Bank of Valls and it was the first experience of cooperative cellar movement in the entire Spanish State.
