SITGES

Sitges Aba IncomingIt is one of the most attractive and dynamic towns of the Catalan Coast, located in the Costa del Garraf 35 Km south of Barcelona and close to the airport.

Its 17 beaches with an exceptional quality of water, many of them distinguished with the qualification of "Blue Flag", together with its beautiful natural scenery, Sitges is a privileged town where we can walk by the seaside or discover its mediterranean narrow streets full of shops and cafes, enjoy its restaurants and browse through the small shops.
We can find many cultural options, golf courses and marinas, as well as a representative Catalan cuisine.

In the town we can find the church of Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla, located on a promontory overlooking the sea and surrounded by small cobblestone streets originated in the XIV century, which preserves baroque altarpieces and an organ of the seventeenth century.

You can also visit El Cau Ferrat, which was home-studio of writer and painter Santiago Rusiñol, who in the late nineteenth century managed to make Sitges a meeting place for intellectuals and artists, which marked this town with a bohemian atmosphere that still retains today. Sitges Palau Maricel Aba Incoming

The Palau Maricel, has elements of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque origin, and the Casa de la Vila, of nineteenth century with Gothic style are also architectural landmarks.
They are home to interesting museums: the workshop Rusiñol house, besides works of El Greco, Zuloaga and Picasso, among others.
Meanwhile, in the Maricel Museum we can admire collections of Romanesque, Gothic and Art Gallery of Modern Art.
If we delve into the Catalan society of the nineteenth century must visit the Romantic Museum.

Finally we must not forget the International Vintage Car Rally (of National Tourist Interest), the International Fantastic Film Festival and the Corpus Christi celebration of floral carpets, as well as the Carnival, an international celebration that has crossed borders. 

 

Codorniu  Aba IncomingTHE WINE REGION OF PENEDES
(Cava cellars)

The region of Penedés, internationally known for wines and Cavas is located 40 kilometres from Barcelona.
The Capital, Vilafranca del Penedés, hosts an important Wine Museum.

The majority of cellars are open to the public.
One of the most interesting visit are to Cavas Freixenet and Cavas Codorniu, a beautiful example of modernist architecture designed by Puig i Cadafalch.
The guided tour introduces the visitor into a labyrinth of tunnels where you will be able to appreciate the slow process required to elaborate Catalan Cava.

We reccommend also a visit to Bodegas Torres, wine makers since XVII century, to enjoy the wineyards and the visitors center.

CAVA AND MEDITERRANEAN  Aba Incoming Codorniu

A visit to the region of Penedes, visiting a Cava cellar in the morning and stopping for lunch in Sitges, allows to enjoy an unforgettable day among vineyards, savouring the best of Mediterranean cuisine in a typical seaside town.

MONTSERRAT

Montserrat Aba IncomingThe Monastery of Montserrat, located 60 kilometres west of Barcelona, on a spectacular mountain of strange rock formations, is the heart of Catalan religious and spiritual fervour.

Founded in the XI century, the Romanesque figure of the Virgin of Montserrat “La Moreneta”, Patron of Catalonia, is venerated by pilgrims.

At 1 PM, inside the church, the Choir of children of the Escolanía sing like angels. Attendance is recommended.

The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular.
