For your last day we have left the castles of the Baix Gaià walk, which will give you a taste of the heritage of the area, and which date back to the 10th century. In those days the Gaià river marked the border between the counties of Barcelona and El Andalus, and the way was lined with castles, including Altafulla, Catllar, La Nou de Gaià, Montornès, Montoliu, Vespella, Ferran and Tamarit. The walk passes through all eight of these sites, along the river and the GR-92 trail, and is suitable for walking or mountain biking. As with the Anella Verda route, you can choose to do as much of the walk as you like. Parts of it can be quite strenuous, so preparation and an awareness of the capabilities of your group are important.
If you still have time before you have to head off, it’s worth visiting Creixell, where you can see its 10th-century castle, its virgin beach, and the local plant and wildlife. The perfect place to end your visit to the Costa Daurada.
