Guided tour at the Subirats Castle

The castle of Subirats
Every first Saturday of the month

Guided tours at 11am or 12pm


The Subirats Castle is a splendid viewpoint over Penedès and the Montserrat mountains. A long history is hidden behind the castle walls. In fact, from this historical enclave, you can catch a glimpse of Catalan history during the turbulent centuries of the reconquest.

It was one of the first castles built at the beginning of the 10th century when Sunyer, the Count of Barcelona, began the conquest of the Penedès against the Saracens.

The frontier castle, with an imposing 19-meter high tower and the Romanesque church of Sant Pere del Castell (today the Sanctuary of Mare de Déu de la Font Santa) are a testament to these stories that remained hidden until the fortification’s survival after the Reapers’ War in the 17th Century.

A historian guide will lead the guided tour, lasting 45 minutes.
