What can you do in Sant Boi de Llobregat and its Holiday cottages?
The history of Sant Boi de Llobregat goes back to the Iberian era. Remains of settlements from the 6th century BC have been found. It has also been under Muslim rule between the 7th and 12th centuries. Strolling through the historic center you can see buildings such as the baroque church of Sant Baldiri, an 18th century building that houses the tomb of Rafael Casanova. On the other hand, you must also see Can Torrents which was an old manor house from the 16th century or Cal Ribera, a noucentista style house.
Popular festivals are deeply rooted in Sant Boi de Llobregat. At the Artichoke Gastronomic Show, many local producers give their artichokes to taste. We also recommend the Altaveu music festival, one of the most important in Catalan music.
