Cubelles

Province: Barcelona | Shire: Garraf | Inhabitants: 16.051 | Extension: 13,5 Km2 | Altitude: 12 m

The municipality of Cubelles is located at one end of the Garraf region, as it is the first municipality in the region after leaving the Baix Penedès region behind.

As for its surroundings, it is a town open to the Mediterranean Sea ( Playa Larga, Playa de la Mota de San Pedro, Playa de Las Salinas and Playa de las Gaviotas ) but at the same time, inland, you can breathe in the smells of the mountain. It should be added that one of the most attractive areas of this town, par excellence, is the mouth of the River Foix with its wetlands where you can see native birds.

The river Foix, making its way, passes through Cubelles. Although most of the time it is dry due to its reservoir.

Close to the Torrente de Santa Maria there is a Terminus Landmark that limits the term of this municipality and that of Vilanova y la Geltrú. This was an action that used to be undertaken in the 18th century to delimit the territory.

The Castle of the Marquises of Alfarràs is one of the most emblematic buildings in Cubelles. This dates from the year 1675 and was built on the remains of the old castle. Currently, this construction, owned by the City Council, houses the Tourist Office. In another room of this one, the permanent exhibition of the Clown Charlie Rivel is installed, where you can find his costumes, awards.... In fact, Josep Andreu Lasserre (Charlie Rivel) was a native of Cubelles, hence its importance. In addition, in 1980 a sculpture of his figure located in the Plaza del Mar was inaugurated.

Can Travé also has a special interest. This is a neoclassical style residential building rich in Greco-Roman decorative elements. Highlight your home garden where various species of exotic vegetation are found.

In this municipality there were also citizens who went to make the Americas and who are known today as "Indianos". Pere Escardó stands out, who created the Alianza building in 1914 and Joan Pere i Roig who brought drinking water to the town and built the public fountains that are still preserved today, La Font del Carrer Major and the Fuente de la calle de Saint Anthony.
