Discover Gaudí's most secret treasure in Santa Coloma de Cervelló, or the scent of rum in Sitges. Become a casteller (human tower) for the day or travel along the Garraf coast on a jet-ski. Enjoy all this along with a spot of Penedès wine and cava.
A model of the Sagrada Família
It's not just in Barcelona where Gaudí is part of the heritage. The Church of Colònia Güell, in Santa Coloma de Cervelló, plays host to the spectacular Gaudí Crypt, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A church that the architect himself would describe as "a historical model of the Sagrada Família", as it was with this structure that he began to experiment with the innovations that would go on to adorn the famous church. Take a guided tour of Gaudí's laboratory and the largest modernist settlement in Catalonia.
The scent of rum in Sitges
Have you ever wondered why the Bacardi logo is a bat? You'll find out in Sitges, where the headquarters of the world-renowned rum brand are located. Discover their enthralling history at Casa Bacardí, where you'll also learn how to make Mojitos and Cuba Libres with professional cocktail makers. Later on, it's time you are overwhelmed, as you walk through the old fishing village you'll understand why so many artists set up camp here, leaving their mark on its streets and museums.
Jet-ski by the cliffs of Garraf.
If you're looking for a thrill, don't miss out on the jet-ski outings by the cliffs of the Garaff coast, organised by the Estació Nàutica de Vilanova i la Geltrú.

Be a casteller for the day
