Sant Sadurní d'Anoia

Province: Barcelona | Shire: Alt Penedès | Inhabitants: 12.866 | Extension: 19,0 Km2 | 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, Mirillas and Monistrol d'Anoia. In the interior but caressing the coast, it is surrounded by a magnificent natural environment of vineyards just 45 kilometers from Barcelona and 60 from Tarragona, and it is an almost obligatory place of passage for all those who cross Catalonia in a north-south direction.

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

A walk through Sant Sadurní reveals the architectural gems that the cava industry has left in its different eras. Representative buildings of Catalan modernism and signatures of the greatest artists of the moment turned the cava factories into great living museums that are now open to the public with an interesting range of activities. At the Cava Center, in the heart of the municipality, the visitor will be able to learn about the history and emotions that cava arouses.

In the center of town, and beyond the cellar, civil architecture in Sant Sadurní has 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 richness of the old hospital, the Town Hall, the Carlist tower of the Fuente del Mingo or buildings such as Can Rigol, Cal Calixtus, the Ateneo Agrícola or Casa Mestres, among many others. The Simón Coll chocolate factory, which fills the streets with the perfume of cocoa, is also interesting for its visitor center, the Chocolate Space, which presents the production process.

One of the great jewels is located on the outskirts of Sant Sadurní, the pre-Romanesque hermitage of Sant Benet d'Espiells, dating from the 10th century, or the Miranda de Espiells. If there is an ideal time of the year to visit Sant Sadurní, it is at the end of summer, when the grape harvest that fills roads and wineries with tractors will lead to the Sant Sadurní Fairs and the Phylloxera 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 culture of cava.

And if you want to disconnect, Sant Sadurní offers many possibilities for great walks, either around the Can Codorniu lake, following the Paths of the Capital of Cava, which the City Council, in collaboration with the Barcelona Provincial Council, has designed and signposted with the aim of getting to know the natural environment, the city and its rich surroundings, as well as unpublished and not well-known places in the municipality.

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