Cardedeu is a town of 18.000 inhabitants 38 kilometers northeast of Barcelona. It is located in a natural setting at the foot of Montseny Mountain and has historically been considered a strategic point in the communication routes between Barcelona and Girona, cities with which it’s now well linked both by train, bus and motorway or country roads. His train line also communicates directly with the Barcelona Airport.
In the historic center we can find an ideal combination between tradition and modernity and its surroundings still retain the characteristics of an inland plain area where cereal crops and livestock predominate, and are dominated by small hills and gentle valleys that make up a landscape patchwork of fields and mediterranean forest.
Cardedeu is also a very open and dynamic town. It is characterized by its great cultural activity and a large association network. We can regularly find there many cultural events: dance, theater, poetry, literature, circus, outdoor performances, exhibitions, a cinema with a regular program of films in original version unreleased, or hardly visible in commercial displays (Esbarjo Verdi), a local television channel (the first local Spanish State television) and much more.
