Coast of Catalonia
Cal Mestre is a 15 minutes drive from the coast of Catalonia.
The Catalan coast below Barcelona is called the Costa Dorada.
There are beautiful places to discover: rugged nature, fashionable seaside resorts and ancient towns.
Coast of Catalonia | Parc del Garraf
The “golden coast” starts right behind our casa rural. Here is the Parc del Garraf.
You can explore this beautiful regional nature park directly from our casa rural Cal Mestre. You walk into the rugged hills.
In addition to rugged nature, the nature park also has beautiful places, such as Olivella, Garraf, Castellet and country houses such as palau Novella and La Pleta.
Old watchtowers and castles dominate the landscape at strategic locations.
Coast of Catalonia | Sitges
You will soon have a view of the blue Mediterranean Sea and the seaside town of Sitges.
The well-known coastal town on the Catalan coast became popular with artists and the rich bourgeoisie from Barcelona around the turn of the last century. Western tourists were added in the 1960s.
Sitges has a microclimate with 300 “sun” days a year and attracts a colorful mix of party animals, artists, tourists, LGBTs and bohemians.
Sitges has 17 beautiful city beaches, each with its own audience.
If you can’t choose, you can always go to the centrally located Platja de Sant Sebastià, where mainly locals come. There are nice cafes and bars on the car-free beach boulevard.
Coast of Catalonia | Vilanova i la Geltru
If you go a little further south, you will find Vilanova i la Geltru, a city on a small bay.
The city is more relaxed than neighboring Sitges. But the sandy beaches and shallow water are just as beautiful. Vilanova has a long seafaring tradition and a well-known fishing and marina.
If you drive a half hour further south, you will arrive in Tarragona, one of the most beautiful cities in all of Spain and the coast of Catalonia.
Tarragona was the capital of the Roman province of Hispania around the beginning of our era.
It is a mini Rome on the coast of Catalonia, complete with typical Roman buildings such as an amphitheater, an aqueduct and a forum.
In the far south of the coast of Catalonia is a vast landscape of enormous sandy plains, salt marshes, rice fields and a village here and there. The Ebro Deltais the most unique nature reserve in all of Spain.
You can’t get further away from the tourist trails. The delta is located in the extreme south of the coast of Catalonia and protrudes like a breast into the Mediterranean sea.
In the middle of the Delta you will find Riet Vell, a nature reserve annex ecological rice farm.
