The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
Barcelona is only a 30 minute ride / 40km away from the house, going by a cost free “autovía” freeway, so you might enjoy this splendid lively city and come back into total quietness in the middle of the mediterranian smooth landscapes.
For those who like to make hiking or biking trips, there are countless trails with spectacular views of the famous Montserrat Mountain, which is only 5km away from the house. You can also go up the mountain by the “cremallera” train and visit the monastery of Santa María de Montserrat with its "la pilgrimages" the patron saint of Catalonia, it's worth a visit!
On top, there is the Costa de Garraf with its white sanded beaches, only 25km away. Or if you'd like to visit a little lively town of Sitges, its also not much further.
The next village to the house is Els Hostalets de Pierola in the province of Barcelona, with less than three thousand inhabitants. As in many other villages in this area, most local companies are dedicated to farming, for instance cereals, almond or olive oil, or producing wine. In the Penedès region, you'll find a lot of the famous wineries with an international reputation, such as Freixenet, the famous sparkling wine, or Bach and Codorniu. All these wineries offer family tours to visit their cellars, some even with a little train going underground through the tunnels.
In addition, there is a castle and a Romanesque church. Pierola is particularly well known by its famous “former resident", an ancestor who today would be about 12.5 or 13 million years old!
The bony figure which was found in 2002 by a team of catalan paleoanthropologists, let not only the experts quite astonished. This news were spreat internationally. Now a center for restoration and paleontology arises (CRIP), which forsees a center for fossils an international studies. The village gave his famous ancestor's name Pierolapithecus catalaunicus, or shorty just called “Pau”.
