The city is divided in two parts as the name gives away; Vilanova and (i) La Geltrú. Initially these were two separate entities, but because they are so close to each other, they merged over time. Starting at the promenade along the coastline till the Parish church, Sant Antoni Abat, you will find the Rambla Principal. This esplanade will take you along the most popular shopping street with modernista facades in Vilanova and la Geltrú.
Close to the Sant Antoni Abat church you encounter also the Santa Maria Church and the old Castle of Geltrú of which you can visit the inside court yard. At the heart of Vilanova i la Geltrú, you will find la Placa de la Vila, a romantic square surrounded with arcades, where the monumental city hall is established between various bars where you can enjoy your aperitivo con tapas.
