Map of the Barcelona Wine and Cava cycling Tour
The Landscape usually marks the identity of a territory. In the Penedès the vineyards are by no doubt the main element that sculpture the landscape, the culture and the economy of the area. It is a unique landscape between Barcelona and Tarragona and its boundaries are the Mountains and the Sea.
Penedès is a wine-producing region having a Spanish Denominació d'Origen. The area is framed by Montserrat, Garraf and Prades. Considered one of the country's best wine-producing regions after La Rioja, it is also one of the most ancient viticulture areas in Europe. Better known for its Cava production, a sparkling wine, by companies like Freixenet.

The Foix Reservoir which holds water from the river of the same name, is in the southernmost part of the El Penedčs depression it covers an area of 2,900 hectares.

Comarruga and Costa Dorada. The warm water coming out in Comarruga were declared medicinal by the Royal Academy of Medicine in Barcelona in 1892.

Santa Martí Sarroca is a jewel of European Romanesque. The Romanic monumetal conjunct of the Church and the castle of Sant Martí Sarroca is situated strategically on top of the hill of La Roca, and is considered of a National interest. From the X & XII century.

La Giralda de l'Arboç is a Replica of the Giralda (in Sevilla – Andalucia). It was built between 1899 and 1907. In the interior can be found a reproduction of the internal “patio” de los leones of the Alhambra in Granada.

Bodegas Torres' headquarters in Vilafranca del Penedčs are the roots of a great dream that has grown right from day one. Enjoy an unforgettable visit to the wineries. Try the wines produced there, soak up the nature and relax while enjoying the world of wine.

Sant Sadurní d'Anoia and Freixenet A town known for its high concentration of cava producing companies.

  We drank Wine and Cava and learned a lot about them as well. The food was great... Arboç was my favorite. The rides are perfect! not too long, not too short. I never navegated with a GPS before- It was a piece of cake...
