The Iberian Route: Wine and chocolate in the land of the cessetani

Sleep amongst the vines and travel back to the time of the Iberians to find out how they made wine
Tarragona
A weekend full of experiences in which you will have the opportunity to taste some cavas in the very cellars they come from, sleep amongst the vineyards and travel back to the time of the Iberians to see how they made wine.
 
CODORNIU WINE CELLARS
You could spend the morning exploring the Codorniu wine cellars in combination with the Simón Coll artisanal chocolatiers. A guided visit will reveal to you the secrets of the family business, the oldest established chocolatiers in Catalonia, and the reason why so many schoolchildren in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia went to school with a smile on their faces every morning.
 
FONT DE LA CANYA IBERIAN SETTLEMENT
After lunch in one of the numerous restaurants in the area, you could visit the Font de la Canya Iberian settlement which has a unique geocatching activity that lasts for about an hour. It starts at the Artcava car park. And, to stay the night, what do you think about sleeping in some incredible, fully-furnished, stone cabins right in the middle of the vineyards?
 
THE OLÈRDOLA GROUP OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES
After breakfast the following day, what about visiting Olèrdola. It is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in Catalonia and tells the tale of our history from the time of the Iberian settlements up to the Middle Ages.
 
VILAFRANCA DEL PENEDÈS

When you finish your visit head on towards Vilafranca del Penedès where you can taste the wines at the wine museum tavern, or you could even head onwards towards one of the nearby towns where, at 12 noon, if you are in luck, you will probably be able to see a display of human tower building, or castells.
