What you shouldn’t miss during your stay

In 2005, seven buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí were inscribed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Six of them are extremely well known: the Sagrada Família, La Pedrera, Casa Vicens, Parc Güell, Palau Güell and Casa Batlló. However, the seventh architectural gem in the list, the Crypt of the Colònia Güell, is much less famous. It’s an architectural masterpiece in which the author of impossible works tested his considerable intellect.

<p>Colònia de Viladomiu Nou</p>

If you have a curious mind and are looking for a family-friendly activity, then plan a day trip to the colònies tèxtils (textile model villages) of the regions of Barcelona. Built between the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century, they’re still full of working machines, fabrics you’re allowed to touch and plenty of amazing stories. Ready to journey into the past?

<p>European Balloon Festival</p>

Do you fancy seeing more than 50 hot-air balloons in flight over Anoia? Well, don’t miss the European Balloon Festival! Enjoy competitions, exhibitions, concerts and hot-air balloon flights. This is the most important hot air balloon meet in Southern Europe.
