Castelldefels is located at the heart of Costa del Garraf, between the mountainous landscape of the massif of Garraf and the Mediterranean. More than five kilometres worth of fine beaches are found there, only a few minutes away form Barcelona and its international airport. This exceptional location makes it an attractive tourist destination for those who wish to observe the sharp contrasts that the region of Baix Llobregat exhibits. Thus, the visitor will be able to play any water sport in the unbeatable facilities of the marina, including canoeing in the Olympic Canal, built for the 1992 Olympics. The lovely temperatures of the coast of Barcelona will let us enjoy the Mediterranean waters, and the rich artistic heritage. The ancient castle of Fels, which gave this town its name, dominates the coastline of the city. We can also see medieval defence towers, erected in the 16th century, such as the towers of Can Ballester and Barona Tower.
