Over the centuries, Penedès has been a crossroads. Various peoples and civilizations have left their mark on these lands, creating the rich historical and cultural heritage we know today. A stone’s throw from the Masía, the Castell de Olèrdola is definitely worth a visit to see the intermingling of Iberian and Romanesque remains. The Route of the Iberians, which runs from Olèrdola to Calafell, is also fascinating.
Modernism and monasteries
We recommend that you follow the modernist route in Vilafranca del Penedès, Sitges and Sant Sadurní. And, of course, there are Penedès’s many castles and the nearby Monasterio de Poblet, a World Heritage Site since 1991.
Just 40 minutes away, you can visit Gaudí’s Barcelona and Tarragona, declared a World Heritage Site for its fascinating Roman remains.
“The Masía is extremely well located for visiting the Romanesque and modernist routes. As art and architecture enthusiasts, we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. Sleeping next to an 11th-century chapel is a real privilege!”
