The Subirats train station. A love story

The Subirats Tourism Office, located at Lavern-Subirats Station, was inaugurated in 2001. The Lavern-Subirats Railway Station dates from 1958.

The origin of the project dates back to April 27, 1946, when the Count of Lavern’s daughter, Mª Antònia Maristany, of Can Maristany, married Frederic Travé Alfonso, nephew of the chairman of the board of directors of RENFE, Eduardo Alfonso. They set up a special convoy for the guests.

They married in the parish of Sant Pere de Lavern in order to be able to have the banquet in the bride’s family’s farmhouse, Can Maristany. At that time, the railway company committed to building the station, which was delayed for another decade, despite Mayor Antoni Casanovas’ promise. Ultimately, the residents built the station. The electrification of the line in 1956 most likely accelerated and contributed to making first the stop, and then the Lavern-Subirats Station a reality.

The arrival of the inaugural train at Lavern-Subirats train station dates back to that historic March 25, 1958. It had all the characteristic elements of the time: thanksgiving mass at 12 noon, and at 1:45 p.m. the authorities arrived on the first train, with a chaplain blessing the place, which gave way to the official opening of the stop.

Bicycle rental centre

You can get to Subirats by train, rent a bicycle in EnobicingPenedès at the same station, cycle for miles through vineyards along the Subirats routes and enjoy stunning views of the whole region. If arriving by car, free parking is available at the station.

The electric bike cycling activity along the Subirats routes is combined with the offerings of cellars and wineries. In Subirats there are 27 wineries, many of them open for visits and tastings on terraces amongst the vineyards and bar service to have a glass of wine with an aperitif.
