Your second day sees you heading to the outskirts of Sant Pere de Ribes where you'll find an extraordinary 14th-century house and gardens that housed a community of Jeronim monks in the 15th century. Most of what you can see today, however, dates from the 19th century, when wine was already being made here and was winning gold medals at the 1888 Universal Exposition in Barcelona. And the wines made here, at Torre del Veguer, are still winning awards today. If you want to explore the house and grounds and find out how wine is made, join one of the guided tours. You’ll also discover the links between the house and Salvador Dalí and take part in a tasting of some of the house wines.
At lunchtime, head for one of the many restaurants in Garraf that serve 'xató', a sauce that's typical of both Garraf and the neighbouring Penedès region, made of toasted hazelnuts and almonds, bread crumbs, vinegar, garlic, oil, salt, and red pepper, and typically served on a salad of curly leaf lettuce, anchovies, tuna and cold salted cod. It’s delicious.
