The good life

The Catalan modernist bourgeoisie may have been nouveau riche, but they certainly knew what they were doing: they made summer residences, spas, art collections and haute cuisine fashionable. Nowadays, we can enjoy their approach to life for ourselves, especially in Vallès Oriental, a region where there are plenty of ways to make the most of your leisure time.
