Practical Information

Olèrdola has a privileged location between the Penedès county and Garraf coast. Since prehistoric times, its inhabitants have left their mark: an Iberian settlement, an impressive Roman fort and a medieval town with Pre-Romanesque and Romanesque churches and medieval tombs carved into the rock.

We recommend good shoes for walking in the mountains, water and warm clothing or sun hat depending on season. Throughout the year we offer guided tours and theatrical visits to the Natural and Archaeological Park. If you like mountain we recommend you the circular route.

So, we encourage you to discover this magnificent settlement located in the Natural Park of Olèrdola, right in the heart of the Penedès.
