Experience the most famous of the region during your stay in the Alt Penedès holiday cottages: wine tourism

If anything defines Alt Penedès, it is its popular and long winemaking tradition : it is the region that produces the most wines and cavas in Catalonia. An economic and cultural activity present in the area for centuries. The climate is unbeatable, mild; the territory has the cradle of the Litoral and Prelitoral mountain ranges. The caress of the maritime atmosphere, restrained by the mountains, and the extensive space of the plain, make the land of Alt Penedès, rich in phosphorus, extremely suitable for the development of quality wines and cavas.

And this strong wine tradition has been maintained over time, covering the territory with nearly 300 wineries, some with modernist designs. If you are a big fan of the wines made with the Xarel·lo, Parellada or Macabeu variety, you have an appointment with the different producers in the area. Don't miss Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, known as the “capital of cava”. Spend incredible winemaking days very close to the holiday cottages in Alt Penedès!

The modernism that permeates the Alt Penedès

Although wines and cavas define a large part of Alt Penedès, they are not the only interesting feature of the region. At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, with the introduction of new grape varieties, the wine industry enjoyed a great economic resurgence. This contributed to the construction or improvement of wineries, which further boosted the economy. These changes were requested from renowned architects, who left both their personal and modernist traces of the time. If you like architecture, during your stay in the holiday cottages in Alt Penedès you will enjoy these places:

  • The different modernist buildings: in Alt Penedès you will find several cities and towns that keep vestiges of the architectural trend. Examples are Gelida, a small town with numerous modernist facades. Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, where after the phylloxera of the 19th century, modernism gained a lot of strength. Or Vilafranca del Penedès, where you can see this stream at many points of interest.

Wine and Cava Roads

Experiencing the Alt Penedès, tasting the wines in the cellars is very good, but you can also enjoy the beautiful vineyards where the essential element to obtain this drink is grown: the grapes.

Foix marsh and Castellet castle

At the southern end of the county is the Foix marsh, in the municipality of Castellet i la Gornal. It was built with the purpose of providing a source of irrigation to the surrounding fields. Staying in the holiday cottages of Alt Penedès you can enjoy the town, from where several hiking routes start with the marsh as its protagonist.
