Vilanova i la Geltrú
Next come the promenade and the residential area of Ribes Roges, where some Catalan Art Nouveau summer houses of the early 20th century stand out. The Torre de Ribes Roges, the only tower remaining of the three of the last walled enclosure of the coastal area of Vila Nova, dates from 1850. Today it is a remarkable place where contemporary artist Josep Guinovart has recreated his interpretation of the maritime world.
At this point passeig del Carme begins, one of the leisure spots of the town with the terraces, bars and restaurants, the Parc de Ribes Roges and the yacht harbour. Continuing along the promenade, at the crossroads with La Rambla, the monument to Francesc Macià (President of the Generalitat de Catalunya and born in the town) can be seen, a work by the artist Josep Maria Subirachs. From here begins the most maritime area of the town, with the Casa del Mar(with large arch windows on the façade) or Ca la Fassina (typical fisherman´s house, easy to recognise with the porch supported by enormous beams). Following the promenade we find the fishing port, one of the most important in Catalonia in fleet and catch. It is interesting to watch the arrival of the boats to port, at 8 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon.
