Penedes Catalan Cultural Tour
At 5 pm, we will meet in Barcelona, near Plaça de Catalunya square, where we board the minibus which will take us into the interior of the peninsula to the town of Vilafranca del Penedès, known as the capital Catalonian wine.
After getting off the bus, we will immediately take a guided tour of the historic center of Vilafranca del Penedès. We will stroll through its narrow streets, admiring its historic buildings, until we reach the church of Santa María. There, we will climb to the top of the bell tower to admire the views and enjoy a wonderful glass of the famous regional wine.
Vilafranca del Penedès is a tow with a grand tradition that you will discover for yourself when we visit a Castellers' rehearsal room. You will learn all about this ancient art form that has been passed down from generation to generation. Castells are among the most recognizable symbols of Catalan culture and you will see one of these famous human towers in action.
After this visit, we will enjoy a delicious dinner based on traditional products of the area, such as mussels, sausages, mushroom risotto, cod, among many others.
