El Baix Penedes: wine country

El Baix Penedes is best known as one of the wine capitals of Catalonia. You can't look anywhere without spotting lines of vineyards and the countryside is dotted with wineries that open their doors for travelers to come and taste. If you've booked an El Baix Penedes vacation rental in the district's capital, El Vendrell, there's an almost overwhelming number of independent museums, many of which focus on characters from the town's past, like the famous composer and cellist Pau Casals. Beyond the town, the charming little coastline is a magnet for sun-seekers and the best place to cool during the sizzling summers.

Museums in El Baix Penedes

Culture buffs should look to the town of El Vendrell which, for its size, has a surprisingly large number of museums. A good place to start is the small musical Pau Casals House Museum, the former home of the famous Catalonian cellist and conductor.
