Rich pickings

Vilanova i la Geltrú is a medium-sized coastal town that’s remained popular since being built as a fishing fort. When you set foot here, you’ll be amazed by the sheer number of opulent 19th century buildings in the town centre. There’s a tower standing by the city walls, housing an art museum.

Full steam ahead

Another attraction worth visiting is the Museu del Ferrocarril. It’s home to dozens of old steam trains, plus some diesel and electric carriages. The local beach, Platja de Ribes Roges, is peaceful and provides great views of the Mediterranean Sea, with waves lapping against the clean white sand.

Looking back

There’s a clutch of can’t-beat restaurants in Vilanova. You’ll find places serving dishes like fresh, zesty salads and mouth-watering steaks. After having a bite to eat, it’s well worth taking a moonlit stroll through Vilanova Park – especially if you want to see more of this glorious, authentic resort.
