Penedès 360 – The original
“There are no technical difficulties and the route is one hundred percent cycleable, however we recommend that you take it as a small trip that must be savoured, stopping to look at the popular architecture that you will find, to retain the different tones of green, or ocher, depending on the time of year. In addition, you will find additional routes that will take you to a winery, a castle, a viewpoint … Take advantage of them!”
