An essential visit if you come to the Artur Martorell holiday home is the castle of Santa Creu de Calafell. This is a medieval fortified enclosure, first recorded in 1037, and is located in the historic centre of Calafell, which is medieval in origin. The route around the interior of the enclosure includes some outstanding features such as the conjuratory and the belfry, the Romanesque church that shelters medieval paintings or the cistern, each concealing very interesting stories.
The Iberian Citadel of Calafell, also known as the Iberian settlement of Alorda Park or Les Toixoneres, is an archaeological site of the Iberian Cessitani people. It is a fortified enclosure facing the sea, founded in the 6th century BC. The Iberian citadel allows visitors to enter reconstructed houses, which contain replicas of objects from the Iberian culture, and climb the defence towers through a reproduction of a Roman assault tower. These types of museum exhibits help to facilitate our understanding of the past.
The Confraria is a building belonging to the old fishermen’s guild which has become the interpretation centre of the fishing Calafell and whose mission is to explain the collective past of the most recent history of the maritime district. Visitors learn how the fishing community lived and was organized: the relationship between employers and fishermen, their work at sea and on land as well as their social and cultural contributions.
Other places for family getaways with children and young people include the Aqualeon water park and PortAventura World.
