El Vendrell

Enjoy El Vendrellof your family holidays!

With attractive maritime landscapes and a town centre full of hidden corners and buildings of interest, El Vendrell is a family destination par excellence, with a cultural, gastronomic, festive and recreational heritage full of possibilities. The beaches of Coma-ruga, Sant Salvador and El Francàs, located three kilometres from the town centre, are one of the main attractions of the municipality. All three have blue-flag status, which is a recognition of the quality of the beach. On Sant Salvador we find the beautiful house where cellist and composer Pau Casals lived. Nowadays it is open to visit, and you can enjoy a guided or theatrical tour or attend a family concert.
