What you'll do

We meet at the station in Sitges and then take the local bus to my house. We start with a welcome drink and then you get to know the Catalan history, with its ups and downs. An entertaining journey through time with lots of material. You may also be interested in a little treasure (car racing) just around the corner. Back home it is tasting time: While enjoying a glass of Cava/juice and the traditional “pan con tomate” you learn something about Cava-making as well as local specialities. (Meanwhile the young ones concentrate on Catalan art.) Deepening the subject, we visit a real gem of an organic farm shop (old masia), which belongs to the initiative “Origen-Garraf” and sells local products. Right behind the masia we follow a path into nature. I lead your family into the world of art and nature with a lot of expedition equipment (art charts, magnifying glass, microscope etc.). Along the nature track we enjoy an awesome sea view and spot the town of Sitges. Resting in the shadow, we discover daily life in Spain and Catalonia and go on a mini treausure hunt. Hiking back to the masia, we have time to talk about your onward journey.
