The Iberian Route: Family seaside activities in the land of the cessetani

A family weekend to enjoy the beach and visit an Iberian settlement just as it would have been like 2000 years ago.
From July to September

Visit the archaeological sites of Darró, in Vilanova i la Geltrú, and Ciutadella, in Calafell, and enjoy a weekend full of seaside activities such as kayak and stand up paddle (SUP)!

Spend the first day in Vilanova i la Geltrú where, if you like, you won't need to take the car! In the morning visit the Darró archaeological site at the end of the promenade. It is a small, and little-known, settlement that was used between the fifth and first centuries BCE, you will think it's a great find.

After lunch you could take a kayak out (eight years of age and above) or a scooter (if you are with smaller children). After a couple of hours on the water you will have built up an appetite for lunch in one of the local restaurants.

On Sunday, after breakfast, go to Calafell where you can continue to enjoy seaside activities at the Calafell Sailing School. This time you can try the SUP, a new nautical sport which involves rowing on a board similar to a surf board.

After lunch, visit Ciutadella, an incredible Iberian settlement that has been completely rebuilt so that everybody, old and young, can see what life was like for the inhabitants of this area. You can go into their houses and you can walk along their narrow streets, just like they used to do 2000 years ago!
