It's that time of year again!
This year we’re touring Barcelona's lovely sea-side neighbor Castelldefels! We start our day with a tour of the old village and wind our way up to the Castelldefels Castle. Our guide will lead us through the history of this 10 century medieval fortress situated on Iberian and Roman ruins. Built to defend the Carolingian Empire against the Caliphate of Córdoba and later enlarged as a response to the Ottoman Empire, you'll also learn of castle murders, piracy, executions and tortures
After working up an appetite, we'll dive into the traditional calçotada feast in the nearby Masia Can Llong.
