What's Castelldefels Like?
Surrounded by the Garraf mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, Castelldefels hotels offer a diverse, rich landscape to explore. Beyond the sun, fun and sea, one can find a quiet village community full of traditional Catalan dishes and an abundance of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Known as one of Barcelona's summer playgrounds, life along the boardwalk is always in full swing during the high season. However, closer to the town center, life is slower and more traditional with shops closing up during the afternoon siesta hours. There is also more to do here than just sunbathing: the nearby Palau Novella Buddhist Monastery; the modest Castle of Fels and its surrounding park includes a Romanesque chapel and a quiet spot to take in a view of the Garraf Massif and coastline from above; the Olympic canal is another popular place to enjoy water sports, including canoeing and sailing, as well as people watching.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Castelldefels
In Castelldefels, Catalan culture mixes with a community made up of famous footballers, international students from the local university, commuters from Barcelona, and sunbathing tourists. Catalan is still commonly spoken here, but daily life can be easily managed with some basic Spanish or often in English in many places. Local foods include a wide selection of cured meats and spicy sausages, salted fish and calçots (a type of green onion widely enjoyed here). Yet, it's easy enough to find a good sushi restaurant or grab a Frappé coffee from a trendy cafe. Castelldefels hotels keep all this in mind, making it easy to find a place to stay that can be traditionally simple, convenient or modern. For getting around town, it's best to go by bike or on foot as the beach, town center and popular nightspots are all within welcoming reach. Find an perfect Castelldefels hotel match on Hotels.com.
