Sporting excellence

Teams and athletes choose Sant Cugat for their training camps because it offers all the services of a major city without any of the inconveniences. Sant Cugat is peaceful, safe, well designed, has an important heritage and is full of urban parks with the Collserola Natural Park practically next door. Located very close to Barcelona, it is well connected by road and public transport with the Catalan capital and the rest of the world.

There’s nothing better than walking to training sessions, returning to the hotel on foot, ambling through the city centre’s pedestrian area in the shadow of the imposing monastic complex, one of the most impressive cloisters in Europe and located in the city centre. A stone’s throw away, there’s the option of exploring a Natural Park like Collserola and filling your lungs with energy and your body and mind with fresh air.
