Sabadell

The rich heritage and history of Sabadell, joint regional capital with Terrassa, is extensive and diverse. Prehistoric traces to recent history, the Catalan Art Nouveau and industrialisation all form part of its makeup. Rising from the banks of the River Ripoll, Sabadell is today a dynamic, active city with services and peaceful spaces. The Old Town retains many old façades and is now an important shopping hub.
