Altitude: 162 m

The municipality of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia is located in the Alt Penedès region and has the aggregates of Can Benet de la Prua, Can Catassús, Miraillas and Monistrol d'Anoia. In the interior but caressing the coast, is surrounded by a magnificent natural environment of vineyards just 45 kilometers from Barcelona and 60 from Tarragona, and is a place of passage almost required for all those who cross Catalonia north-south.

The landscape of vineyards and wineries are the main attractions of the municipality, present in all kinds of events: architecture, industry and cultural activities. And it is that the overcoming of the plague of Phylloxera, at the end of the 19th century, and the combination of progress and craftsmanship in the production of sparkling wines, have turned Sant Sadurní into the capital of bubbles.

A walk through Sant Sadurní reveals the architectural gems that the cava industry has been leaving in its different eras. Representative buildings of Catalan modernism and signatures of the greatest artists of the moment turned the cava factories into large living museums with an interest that grows over time. At the Interpretation Center of the Cava, CIC Fassina, in the heart of the municipality, the visitor will be able to know the history and the emotions that the cava provokes.

In the center of the town, and beyond the cellar, civil architecture has in Sant Sadurní a great example of modernist and eclectic style. The parish church stands out , with its imposing Gothic bell tower of great value, which has become one of the symbols that identify Sant Sadurní, as well as the architectural wealth of the old hospital, the Town Hall, the Carlist tower of the Fuente del Mingo or buildings such as Can Rigol, Cal Calixtus, the Agricultural Ateneo or the Mestres House, among many others. The Simón Coll chocolate factory, which fills the streets with cocoa perfume, is also interesting for its visitors center, the Espacio Chocolate, which presents the production process.

One of the great jewels is in the outskirts of Sant Sadurní, the pre-Romanesque hermitage of Sant Benet d'Espiells, dating from the tenth century, or the Miranda de Espiells. If a time of the year is ideal to visit Sant Sadurní it is at the end of summer, when the harvest of the grape that fills with tractors roads and wineries will end at the Fairs of Sant Sadurní and the Filoxera Festival, from September 6 to 8; or in the month of October, when Cavatast and Cava Week offer a wide range of wine tourism experiences around the cava culture.

And if you want to disconnect, Sant Sadurní offers many possibilities for great walks, either around the lake Can Codorniu, following the roads of the Cava Capital, which the City Council with the collaboration of the Diputación de Barcelona, has designed and marked with the objective of knowing the natural environment, the city and its rich surroundings, as well as unpublished and not very well known places of the municipality.

Whether you have not visited us or want to rediscover us, we invite you to come and try Sant Sadurní all having fun with the experiences that the cava culture offers: tastings, sessions, walks among vineyards, courses, adventure... Prepare, drink in hand, to live Sant Sadurní d'Anoia to the fullest!
