Where is this treasure located?
The area of El Garraf, made up by the towns of Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Sant Pere de Ribes, Cubelles, Olivella and Canyelles, is strategically located 40 km to the south of Barcelona and 45 km to the north of Tarragona. With its modern road network, major tourism infrastructure and privileged climate throughout the year, it is today an attractive quality tourism destination.
Located in the coastal area, between the Mediterranean, the plain of Penedès and the massif of El Garraf, which gives it its own identity and provides its name, it is a territory with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes. The excellent beaches of its coast have a major tourism infrastructure while the Nautical Station and the yacht harbours have magnificent facilities for practising nautical activities.
Much more than beautiful beaches and landscapes
The nature reserves of El Garraf, Olèrdola and El Foix are authentic treasures waiting to be discovered. This is why it is worth enjoying the activities for tourists available in these protected places.
Between the sea and the mountain, in the centre of the area, we find one of the most important landscape values, the agricultural plain, with vine as the main crop and the rich and abundant architectural heritage of farmhouses, houses of indianos and small palaces, many of which are being transformed into charming accommodation, restaurants and cellars that offer tours and activities to bring us closer to the culture of wine. Just as in its landscape, the area is rich in history with archaeological sites that have witnessed numerous historical periods, medieval castles and defence towers, as well as Renaissance and baroque churches, altarpieces and paintings. There is also the artistic legacy of the 19th century which has turned the towns of El Garraf into open air museums of Romanticism and Catalan Art Nouveau.
Nature and active tourism
The area between the sea and the mountain is an undulating serene plain with the most populated towns of El Garraf. An area in constant change because of man´s activity, where agricultural work can still be seen in a mosaic of vineyards and carob and olive trees, among thickets and some sparsely scattered white pine groves.
The natural landscape of this place can be discovered by using one of the many companies that organize guided routes on foot, horse or bicycle. The routes combine the observation of the landscape with interpretation of the nature and history. The more daring also have the opportunity of getting to know the depths of the massif of El Garraf practising caving in some of the chasm-schools prepared for this activity. An activity also guided and controlled by the organizing groups.
El Foix Park
El Foix Park is the most outstanding wetland area of L´Alt Penedès and El Garraf thanks to the river Foix, which starts inside L´Alt Penedès and after running through the area from north to south flows into Cubelles. The central element of the park is the swamp, inaugurated in 1928, at the foot of the town of Castellet, located on a hill crowned by a photogenic castle. In this protected area it is interesting to observe the white pine groves, the bank forest, with ash trees, poplars and alders, and the holm oak wood like that which protects the fountain of Horta. El Foix Park is a meeting point for many birds: more than 143 species have been catalogued.
Soul and flavours from Catalonia to the world
The gastronomy also responds to this diversity and mix, always based on local products, the Vilanova i la Geltrú fish market and the vegetable garden products.
Moreover, a variety of traditional or modern, religious and profane celebrations are held throughout the year, thus also offering visitors the possibility of enjoying popular and traditional Catalan culture during their stay in the area.
Discover the possibilities offered to you to spend your free time in El Garraf and you will see how this area still conserves many unknown places and a rich natural and cultural heritage that well deserves a visit.
