It is a young, modern, dynamic city and a place where things are always happening. Surrounded by the Collserola Natural Park, the great natural treasure. A paradise for walkers, cyclists, joggers and horse lovers. An immense park that offers you an infinite number of possibilities to enjoy nature.

We can start discovering it through its historic centre, where there is the imposing Monastery of Sant Cugat, a religious complex from the 9th century that houses one of the most exceptional Romanesque cloisters in Europe. Strolling among its 144 unique capitals of high sculptural quality or learning about the life of the Benedictine monks in the monastery's museum is a unique experience.
A few metres away you will find the Celler Modernista designed in 1921 by Cèsar Martinell; or the Casa Museu Cal Gerrer, a unique museum dedicated to Marilyn Monroe. Among others, the Comic Museum offers a journey through the history of comics and their protagonists, through the different stages and evolution of their language. The Grau-Garriga Centre of Contemporary Textile Art is the first centre of contemporary textile art in Spain, all of which provide a wide range of culture in the city.
Another essential visit is Mercantic, a small vintage village of antique dealers, craftsmen and artists where different things happen every day. It is one of Europe's benchmarks for lovers of collecting and decoration. You can also enjoy an experience of vintage shopping, leisure and gastronomy.
Strolling along the commercial axis of Sant Cugat is also an attraction in itself. You will find emblematic establishments with beautiful shop windows, art galleries and restaurants serving international cuisine, but also local gastronomy.
