We had a great time in Cubelles. We went for a drive about 15 minutes south to a place on the beach front called Sitges, its a bit busier than Cubelles and a bit more touristy but a very pretty little town with a lot paved areas that you can walk around without worrying about cars running you down and many beautiful clothes shops, I wish we had more room in the suitcases. We stopped off at a patiserie for a coffee and cake (see photo). We also walked past a shop that was filled with legs of ham hanging up for sale, the meat is like proscuito, there must be many different types.
We went for a drive about 1 hour inland and stopped off at a bridge in Martorell dating back to roman times, then drove to a winery called Cordinou where they make Cava (spanish champagne) we missed out on the tour of 26kms of underground winery but still enjoyed the grounds surrounding the winery and the beautiful country side and winding roads.
Spent the last couple of days lazing around the pool, beach and the closest town to us Villa Nova where there is a large marina and more paella.
