The Iberian Route: A weekend away for couples in the land of the laietani

A weekend away for couples at the foot of the Montseny Natural Park where you can combine the magnificent natural surroundings with heritage, and even a gin and tonic workshop! Sounds interesting?
Barcelona
A weekend away to explore the surroundings of Samalús: the Iberian settlement of Puig del Castell, the local cuisine and the unique setting of the hotel Can Cuch.
 
THE IBERIAN SETTLEMENT OF PUIG DEL CASTELL

Start your weekend at Samalús, where you can visit the Iberian ruins of Puig del Castell. To get there you will need to walk up the hill for 45 minutes to reach the top, where the settlement is located. There is a magnificent view of the surrounding area, and a surprising one because what you can see is the result of only 100 days of excavation work!
 
LOCAL CUISINE

After your visit go back down the hill to have lunch at one of the local restaurants. Just two minutes drive away from where you parked the car at the beginning of the itinerary you will find the Can Candelich restaurant, or you can explore other options nearby.

HOTEL CAN CUCH

In the evening what about taking part in a gin and tonic workshop at the hotel Can Cuch where you can learn how to make the combinations created by the hotel's maître. You could spend the night here in the peace and quiet of a unique setting and in the best of company. The following day you can enjoy the surrounding area and all the facilities available at Can Cuch.

This route forms part of the "Get away from it all on the Iberian Route" initiative by the Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya and of the Catalan Government's Cultural Heritage Agency.

You can find all the information you need, and make reservations, online.
