Gavā Blue, Green, Unique
Gavā is just a few kilometres from Barcelona and the airport. It has a population of over 45,000 and covers an area of 30.90 km2, stretching from the southerly beaches of the Llobregat Delta to the Ponent mountain range, behind the foothills of the Garraf massif.
The town of Gavā (9 metres above sea level) is on the plain, at the foot of the Ferreres hills (134m). To the east it is bordered by the municipalities of Sant Climent and Viladecans and the Avinguda de la Riera de Sant Llorenį, and to the west by Castelldefels.
It is generally thought that Gavā was named after Gavius, the founder of a Roman villa that occupied part of what is now the old town centre.
Its attractions include 4 kilometres of coastline (with a pine forest and unique dune system), the mountains of the Parc Natural del Garraf and a town centre full of sites of historical and cultural interest.
Gavā´s excellent climate, with over 3,500 hours of sunlight a year, attracts over 2 million visitors to its beaches every year.
