Penedès this weekend: Archaeology, Fairs, Market and Guided Tours near Barcelona
When I write these recommendations for the Penedès weekend March 8-10, what I see as the main event – the International Archaeology Meeting in Calafell -, has already begun. In this week’s video from Wirdheim in Vilanova (above) you can learn more about the Iberians and the old fortification which they have left behind in this town of Baix Penedès.
Apart from this niche event, Penedès can also offer the annual Art Fair in Sitges (Garraf), a Medieval Market (Fira Reial de Pere III Ceremoniós) in Igualada (Anoia) and a great number of guided tours (in Catalan or Spanish), for example in Vilafranca del Penedès, Subirats and Santa Margarida i els Monjos (all in Alt Penedès) and Sant Pere de Ribes (Garraf).
A full list of Penedès event recommendations can be found here.
