Decorated with modernist motifs, the train invites passengers to immerse themselves in the history and culture of the era.

Tickets for the train can be purchased on the Renfe website and the tour promises a unique experience.

What you can enjoy on the Gourmet Modernism Train Tour

In Mataró, visitors have the opportunity to explore the Nau Gaudí, the first work of Antoni Gaudí through a dramatized visit.

In addition, you can enjoy a strawberry tasting in the Plaza Gran, the medieval heart of Mataró.

A visit to Casa Coll i Regás, accompanied by a tasting, is also part of the activities in this city.

In Canet de Mar, travelers can visit a stained glass workshop and witness a practical demonstration of the process of creating these works of art.

You can also discover how the “sweet” stained glass windows of Canet are made in the vitralls dolços workshop, where tea paste and colored gelatin are used to imitate the modernist stained glass windows.

A dramatized visit to the Casa Museo Lluís Domènech i Montaner and an exploration of Can Rocosa, a 17th century Baroque farmhouse converted into the architect’s studio, complete the activities in Canet de Mar.
