Barcelona to Penedés for wine tour

by maestrousmc

Hello everyone. I'll be arriving Barcelona sometime in late December and plan on making a day trip to Penedés for a tour of a couple wineries. I've pretty much committed to taking the train there. However, I've yet to figure out : (1) the best way to travel in and around and (2) which wineries to visit. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I am sorry I can't help you with your question but I do know the Emporda wine region North of Barcelona fairly well. Probally not as well known as Penedes region but some good wines produced nonetheless. If you are interested in visiting this area I could give you some suggestions if you wish.

Hello! That sounds interesting to me. If you recommend that I visit the Emporda region instead, I'd love to hear more.

Hello Pedmar. Thanks for your reply. I will definitely consider those options once I arrive. However, I would prefer not to drive seeing as I'll (hopefully) be sampling a variety of wines while I'm there. Do you think a trip outside Barcelona for a tour of the wineries is worthwhile?

I don't like wine. I LOVE wine. I think it captures the culture of a people in one single glass -- or bottle. Thanks for the info.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

The Best Map/Directions Available

by jhoolko

To get an interactive online map of the city as well as very accurate directions through Barcelona, visit the bcn wepage (http://www.bcn.es/guia/welcomea.htm) . They have information in Catalan, Castellano, and English, and its all very helpful, but best of all is the 'guia.' You can get directions to a location and they will tell you the walking time and distance and metro time and distance it will take to get there. It is very helpful, especially when trying to navigate the tricky backstreets of the barri gotic or ciutat vella that sometimes aren't on the maps. All you need to do is type in the street and number and they provide you with an accurate, labeled map that can zoom in as far as the street itself or as far out as the entire city. It also includes a function that allows you to locate sights in a specific area. Very helpful.

Casa Comalat Mosaic

by irisbe

Near Diagonal and Placa Joan Carles I you will find the beautiful modernistic building Casa Comalat (1911) by Salvador Valeri (1873-1954) Barcelona.
Casa Ramón Casas (1899) in Barcelona is from this same designer.
Salvador Valeri, a real Barcelonian, belonged to the 2nd generation of the Modernists. Influenced by masters as Gaudi, he designed this building using almost organic shapes (round) and lots of mosaics. Panoramic picture!!! pls click on it to enjoy the full view!

LA MERCE

by Dariana

It`s hard to describe the incendiary atmosphere spread all over the city.We arrived in Barcelona in the midlle of this fiesta:getting out of the car in Plaza de la Seu I`ve found myself into a circle of people who were dancing sardana; so, we put our luggage in the midlle of that circle near other handbags and shoping baskets,and we begun to learn how to dance it.Peoples were amazing trying to show us the steps.(very difficult !)
On the second day,late in the evening after a good meal and a huge glass of sangria it was time to learn samba in Sant Jaume Square.
During this week we had the pleasure of a wine tasting on Rambla del Mar :sweet or dry,red or white wines ,exquisite flavour
born under the sun of Catalunya.

At the end of the festival (20-24 september) ...surprise:a firework show combined with music,water and lights

Camp Nou

by grayfo

The Nou Camp or Camp Nou (Catalan for "new stadium") is the largest football Stadium in Europe. Built in 1957, this is the home of the Barcelona Football Club, commonly known as 'barca' to the locals. The ground is also known as 'The house that Kubala built'. In the 1950s, Kubula used to be a great goal scorer. This Hungarian was so popular with the spectators that the stadium was unable to accommodate the sheer number of supporters who wanted to watch him. A new bigger stadium was eventually built.

The club has also what is considered to be the best football museum in the world, it receives more visitors than any other museum in Catalonia. Exhibits trace the history of the club since it was founded more than a century ago, while the guided tour takes you onto the pitch, through the tunnel and into the changing rooms. The shop also sells a large selection of Barçelona FC souvenirs.

Capacity 98,600

Monday to Saturday: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Sundays: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Admission: £7.40 (includes guided tour)

Marble benches

by Joacim

On the Passeig de Gracia, a big avenue going from Plaza de Catalunye and north, you can find these marvellous marble benches. They have recycled small pieces of marble and put them together and formed these benches. Nice to sit on, pleasant to look at, who can ask for anything more :-)
