COME ON! MAKE A PROPOSAL! NON SIMULTANEOUS INTERCHANGES ALWAYS POSSIBLE!
Sant Cugat is a beautiful mid-size village 10 km north of Barcelona. In addition to easy rail and road communications with Barcelona, It is placed in the best communicated area in Catalonia, on a highway crossing leading to every direction. There are many interesting places within 1 hour driving: beaches (25´), mountains, and beautiful cities or monuments.
An ancient town of roman origins, Sant Cugat hosts one of the biggest romanesque monasteries in Catalonia, now a museum, marking the center of our city life. Many important local and foreign companies and international schools are located (HP, Boehringer, Sharp..) taking advantage of his excellent location and living standard as an old city with young families, with many urban parks and pedestrian areas.
Our home is a two room apartment totally renewed (may 2012) located in a quiet neighborhood at 5 minutes walking distance from downtown, and at 15 minutes walking distance from rail station linking Sant Cugat with the center of Barcelona after a 20' trip.
