Alt Penedès - Garraf. Ruta Medieval

The Penedès - Garraf area was for a long time a frontier zone with the Sarracens. Those were times of violence and upheaval, but above all because of the conflicts between the new Christian settlers, and not so much with the Moors as one might think. Monasteries, hospitals, remains of mediaeval settlements, churches, hermitages and above all castles, still stand today as living testimonies of the histories and legends that we will meet along the way.
