The plan We’ll go for a hike across " El Foix natural Park", located in the Alt Penedès region in which we’ll be impressed by the variety of landscapes this route has to offer. We’ll start at l’Arboç (where we’ll see a replica of the famous Sevilla’s Giralda), we’ll walk on paths through vineyards, we’ll go along the edge of the Foix beautiful reservoir and we’ll climb the Foix mountains. From there we’ll have amazing panoramic view over Vilanova i la Geltrú and its beautiful beach, our final destination. That will be the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing moment, and why not, a refreshing splash into the Mediterranean sea!
