Barcelona – Sitges and Freixent Wine Cava cellars (6 hours)

Do you want to immerse yourself in the magical world of cava? We invite you to visit the Freixenet cava cellars. The guided tour at Freixenet begins with a brief audiovisual presentation of the history of a family business. This is followed by a visit to the old part of the cellars, built in 1922. Here, the house guides will personally explain the process of cava production and will give advice on serving and drinking this sparkling beverage. Visitors will board a small train to travel through part of the 20 km of underground cava cellars. At the end of this journey, visitors arrive at the tasting room where they can taste the different cavas of the Freixenet range. The visit finishes at the “Dolores Ferrer” store where visitors will have the chance to acquire many articles relating to the world of cava and wine.

From here, we drive to Sitges, one of the most picturesque villages on the Catalan coast. With the Garraf massif as a backdrop, Sitges is one of the favorite destinations for tourists visiting Catalonia. Its micro-climate, with almost 300 days of sun per year, seventeen beaches, an attractive range of cultural opportunities and its exceptional cuisine and shopping options make it the perfect choice for enjoying the Mediterranean coast.

Upon arrival, you will take an orientation drive through the town before setting out to explore the town on your own. The modern resort town is also home to structures from the Middle Ages and the old farmers’ and fishermen’s town, offering visitors an impressive architectural and cultural heritage. The town has always been a gathering place for artists, cultural energizers and patrons who made it an important center for Modernism and post Art Nouveau. There are several museums in the Old Quarter, and the town’s location between the sea and the farmland makes for excellent dining opportunities. At the appointed time, meet your transportation for the drive back to Barcelona, arriving in the city center in the evening.

Please note: Although your hostess is not a trained guide, she will be able to offer suggestions on sightseeing, shopping and dining in Sitges. Your guidebook will also include discounts at places of interest, restaurants and shops.

Please note: Your tour departs from and returns to the Plaça de Catalunya area. The plaça is the city center and the place where the old city (Gothic Quarter and Raval) and the 19th century-built Eixample meet. Some of the city’s most important streets and avenues meet in Plaça de Catalunya: Passeig de Gracia, La Rambla, Portal de l’Angel and Ronda Universitat.
