Garraf Natural Park: From Sitges to the Buddhist Monastery

Allow yourself to be seduced by the charms of the Garraf Natural Park as you pedal along, almost effortlessly, at your own pace. When you arrive at the fantastic Buddhist monastery of Sakya Tashi Ling, you’ll have an opportunity to unwind and connect with your inner self...

 

Garraf is home to Europe’s only indigenous palm, the palmetto. These days the palmetto is a protected species; it was almost wiped out because of its use in the manufacture of baskets and other products.

The Pèlags de Vilobí del Penedès

A circular route taking you through a very special zone; a wetland alive with birds, including some protected species. The micro-ecosystem formed by the Pèlags de Vilobí makes a dramatic contrast with the viniculture of the Alt Penedès region as a whole.

The Pèlags have a picnic zone, but if you prefer you can eat at one of the restaurants in or around Vilobí. You could also combine this route with a guided tour of a winery and a wine-tasting. If you want to spend more than one day in the area there are welcoming and locally authentic places to stay.

To Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs

Across towards Subirats, enjoying the landscape full of vineyards, peach orchards and olive groves, to discover a beautiful Romanesque monastery in the quiet village of Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs. 

Approaching Sant Sebastià dels Gorgs, it’s not unusual to spot hares and rabbits among the vines. Owing to its hilly nature and the confluence of mountain streams, this is a wetland zone. Moorhens, green frogs, horsetail and dogwood, typical of this environment, can all be found here. Amongst the birds you can see are:  hoopoes, black redstarts, nightingales and blackbirds. In the village you can spot common and rock swallows and various birds of prey such as kestrels and owls.

The perfect summer: swimming in the rock pools of the Foix river valley

The perfect summer excursion – swimming and diving among the rock pools in a magical setting!

The river Foix creates a beautiful spot with rock pools and water falls. In the winter, when the sun is shining, the trail is delightfully peaceful. In the spring, the almond trees bloom and the birdsong builds to a great intensity. In the summer, the vineyards form carpets of green and, toward the middle and end of August, the grapes ripen and the harvest begins.

Here we can enjoy vegetation typical of Penedès: different varieties of vines, olive and almond trees, fruit trees on the lower slopes and forests of mountain pine above, with a ground covering of rosemary and lavender filling the air with their wonderful scents.
