Next, continue to the pretty seaside village of Sitges and enjoy free time for lunch (own expense). Then, visit the Bacardi House museum to unravel the famous Sitges-Bacardi connection. Learn how Bacardi’s made, join in a cocktail workshop, and mix and savor your own Bacardi-based mojito or Cuba Libre!

Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned coach and drive west to the small town of Sant Sadurni d'Anoia in Catalonia. On route, hear about the town’s claim to fame as the home of the Freixenet Cava Cellars, where some of Spain’s best bubbly – known as cava – is produced.



After roughly an hour, arrive at the Freixenet winery and head inside to learn about the brand, founded in the early 20th century by a husband-and-wife team. Discover how Freixenet quickly gained fame when it began to be exported and gained a DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) classification – a prestigious mark of quality.



Watch an audio-visual presentation about cava and see inside the original cellars, built in 1922. As you explore, hear about the different stages of the production process and discover expert tips on how best to serve and drink cava. Next, ride a mini train through the modern workshop and finish with a fitting finale — a glass of delicious, chilled Freixenet itself.

After, continue by coach to picturesque Sitges, one Spain’s chicest seaside towns. While you travel, hear interesting tales about this pretty whitewashed fishing village, known for its sandy beaches, sunny climate and cosmopolitan vibe.

On arrival, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) at one of the many restaurants, and then rejoin your guide at Bacardi House, set in a converted 19th-century market in Sitges’ old town.

Take a tour of the house and learn how Bacardi’s founder, Facundo Bacardi, was born in Sitges and emigrated to Cuba in 1830, where he established his famous rum. Walk through rooms dedicated to Bacardi and learn all about how it's produced using molasses, stills, barrels and precision filtering.

Finish with an entertaining demo of how to mix the perfect Bacardi cocktail — either a mojito or Cuba Libre — and then grab the chance to mix and enjoy your very own version!

Lastly, return to Barcelona where your tour ends at the original departure point.

The Freixenet facility is first class. The tour guide was wonderful. The Bacardi visit was a nice add-on.
