Sant Cugat is located around 20 kilometres from Barcelona. Its excellent connections by train (Ferrocarriles) and motorway, taking you to the centre of the city in about 20 minutes, have made it a popular alternative destination to the urban lifestyle of Barcelona.
With a history dating back to the 10th Century, Sant Cugat’s village centre is the heart of the region and offers a great range of shops, restaurants and cafés. It even has a cinema, shopping centre, golf course and several parks, including Collserola, one of the largest metropolitan parks in the world. Over the last 20 years, Sant Cugat has expanded to become a region that attracts both Spanish and international visitors. Typical residential properties are mainly terraced houses, but there is also a wide range of small apartment complexes. Sant Cugat is ideal for families with loads of activities for the whole family to enjoy and has both international schools and a university.
Larsson Estate recommends a weekend visit to the Mercantic market. Mercantic was originally an antique furniture market but has since become a cultural meeting place where you can enjoy food, live music, art and cultural events.
