Unique homes on the outskirts of Sitges

On the outskirts of Sitges, we can find the Celler Güell, a set of modernist buildings located in the heart of Garraf, even within the town of Sitges, in the county road 246 from Sitges to Barcelona.

This architectural ensemble consists of the cellar, a residence and a chapel. it was built by Gaudi in the last decade of s. XIX commissioned by industrialist Eusebi Güell because he owned various wine farms in the area of Garraf, highlights its parabolic arches, the use of wrought iron and brickwork, asymmetry and references to medieval times. Currently, the winery is a restaurant. We recommend strolling along the beach of Garraf with its quaint beach cottages.

An interesting place to visit in the heart of the park is the Garraf Buddhist Monastery. Founded by M.V. Jamyag Tashi Dorje Rinpoche in 1996, constituting the first headquarters community Buddhist Monks Sakya Tashi Ling. The main palace was built in 1905, nowadays is almost mostly restored, preserving its original architecture. Visitors can enjoy the cultural and spiritual offer, also its natural environment, make the monastery a magnificent heritage of making and a place of pilgrimage as an example of peace and harmony.

Oenological routes and visits to wineries

It is possible to initiate a path of the vineyards and wine cellars in the area of el Garraf, where it has made wine for over 2000 years. The Iberians, the first inhabitants of the area, cultivated the vineyard and shipped the wine to sell it to towns on the Mediterranean coast. In exchange, they obtained cereals or other food products which completed their diet. Years later, this small trade intensified. The Romans, who would establish themselves in the area, also traded in wine by sea, in Rome and also in France.

The grapevine was one of the main crops of the area until at the end of the 19th century the phylloxera plague completely ruined the Catalan vineyards. The epic tenacity of the peasants in replanting the vines with American stock, to later cross it with genuine varieties, established the basis of a solid and quality production. Today the vineyard is experiencing a new drive and is recovering many of the abandoned fields. The winegrowers of the area produce excellent wines and cava (Catalan sparkling wine) based on the varieties of white grapes (xarel•lo and Malvasia) and black grapes (ull de llebre, carinyena, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and sumoll) within the D.O. Penedès, with the character given to it by the Mediterranean climate together with the calcareous and sandy soil of El Garraf.

El Garraf offers opportunities to get to know the winegrowers and the results of their efforts. In Vilanova i la Geltrú, Sitges and Sant Pere de Ribes, you can visit the producer cellars and their vineyards. Also, in Sant Pere de Ribes you can follow a guided visit to the producer farmhouses through a route organized by the tourist information office.

The Malmsey

According to the legend, the person who brought the Malvasia stock for the first time to Sitges was an Almogaver knight directly from the Greek Island of Monembasia in the 12th century. Other interpretations point out the fact that the Greeks spread Malvasia as they settled in the lands they colonized.

Whatever happened, malmsey is one of the genuine wines of Sitges. Today, the grape variety is grown in the vineyards of the Hospital de Sant Joan, where this sweet wine is prepared, especially recommended after a good xató (a typical salad made with nuts based sauce, tune and cod), and to accompany desserts.  More information
