Vilafranca de Penèdes, Espanya

What a great trip this was! As all the new university students showed up for the new semester at UPF, the university organized a lot of trips around the Catalunya region for students to become acquainted with the Spanish lifesyle.

This trip was to the the Wine and Cava region of Catalunya! We hopped on the 45 minute train from the centre of Barce

lona to Vilafranca de Penèdes, located just southwest of Barcelona. We had a great day sightseeing around and getting a superb tour of one of the wineries/cava-eries (La Bodega) and also a great tour of the old city.

Highly recommend for anyone within the region and with a taste for some good wines or cavas!
