Priorat has an area of 496 km² and is bordered by the River Ebro, and by the comarques of Baix Camp, les Garrigues, and Conca de Barberà. The region is mostly hilly, and in the extreme north of the comarca is the Montsant mountain range, rising to over 1000m; the south is bordered by the Mola de Colldejou and the mountain ranges of Llebaria and Santa Marina.
