Castells de Marca Route

A circular walk

A route full of historic sites, nature and scenery in the heart of Penedès

If you are fascinated by history and you like walking, we recommend a circular walk of great natural, historical and cultural interest that takes you through the towns of Santa Margarida i els Monjos, Olèrdola and Castellet i la Gornal.

The walk is arranged around three Penedès Castells de Marca (castles) surrounded by stunning countryside and great natural wealth. Buildings that originally consisted of simple constructions designed for the defence and control of the territory, but which over the centuries were converted into majestic residential buildings by the lords who inhabited them.

During the walk you will be able to enjoy the environment, discovering Penedès and some of its greenest spots, as you make your way to the extraordinary medieval heritage sites of Olèrdola Castle, Peñafort de Santa Margarida i els Monjos Castle and Castellet i la Gornal Castle to discover the history behind them.

Come on this Castells de Marca walk and discover a time full of legends and battles in Penedès that is sure to make a lasting impression on you.
