Discover something new in El Baix Llobregat

It's likely you're seeking El Baix Llobregat vacation rentals close to Barcelona. You know, to have the Gothic Quarter and its carved cathedral, electrifying La Rambla, tasty tapas and all the mind-boggling buildings of Antoni Gaudi on the doorstep. But this triangle-shaped region that rings the Catalan capital is much more than just a place to bed down before hitting the city. You can discover luxurious villas with pools in the garden, beach apartments that spill onto Mediterranean sands, and even mountain boltholes on the fringes of rugged Montserrat.

Things to do

The enchanting mountain monastery of El Baix Llobregat

The region of El Baix Llobregat extends so deep into the backcountry of Catalonia that it can count the mountains of Montserrat in its enticing roster of draws. You can head there to discover the majestic Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey. With a history going back all the way to the 10th century, it's certainly old. And its gilded, glorious interiors spill into museum rooms, where works of art by El Greco and Picasso adorn the walls. You can also ride the funicular railway from the abbey to the soaring lookout points at Montserrat's summit.


Unwind or explore in El Baix Llobregat

With the 3-mile sandy arc of Castelldefels and oodles of El Baix Llobregat vacation rentals with pools in the offing, it's hardly a surprise that many a break to this corner of Catalonia is taken up completely with good old R&R. Of course, you can opt to hop about the place to get that fix of culture and history. Guided tours of Barcelona's amazing Gothic Quarter are always available. Foodie tours of the city's markets are also on the menu. And so are backcountry pursuits, like hiking and horse riding through the El Baix Llobregat reserves.


A lot of El Baix Llobregat sunshine

El Baix Llobregat follows the same 4-season pattern as bustling Barcelona. Summers, in June, July and August, are the best times to chill on the beaches of Castelldefels or look for El Baix Llobregat vacation rentals with a pool – temperatures can regularly creep into the 80s and 90s. Spring, in May, is mild but sunny, not to mention much less busy around the main sites and attractions. The same goes for fall, when the warm weather continues into September and October.

Natural features

From bays to big mountains in El Baix Llobregat

El Baix Llobregat meets the wavy Mediterranean just south-west of Barcelona city. The jewel in its crown is the wide arc of yellow sand that is Castelldefels beach. That stretches for more than 5 kilometers before running into Barcelona–El Prat Airport. As you head inland, the terrain begins to crumple upwards. Farms cling to the fertile riverside plains of the Parc Agrari, before the land rises to the Serra de Collserola Natural Park, a patchwork of wooded valleys and sierras that overlooks Barcelona's heart. Further north is rocky Montserrat, with its distinctive serrated peaks – that's a wonder to explore.
