ENJOY BARCELONA

Barcelona is one of the most important tourist destinations in Europe, with millions of people visiting every year. The city is famous for its 19th century Modernist architecture, mostly designed by Antonio Gaudí. The best known of those buildings -the unfinished church Sagrada Familia- is one of the symbols of Barcelona. The city is also famous for hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as world-class conferences, expositions, and many international sport tournaments. Barcelona is not only architecture or sport. It is also sea. It’s mountains. It’s urban. It’s gastronomy. It’s history. It’s art. It’s culture. It’s many things at the same time. So there’s plenty of things to discover and to enjoy!

DISCOVER CASTELLDEFELS

Boasting an enviable geographic location, Castelldefels is les than 20 minutes away from Barcelona city and its international airport. It offers a perfect combination of sea, endless beaches and a little bit of culture. Catelldefels is famous for its long beach that it has more than 5km and for being the place of residence of many sportsmen. In this area you can also enjoy countless experiences such as soaking up the essence of the Mediterranean coast practicing water sports, visiting the iconic mountain of Montserrat or wandering among the vines and touring the top wineries.
