9:00h    Departure from the IFORS Conference Venue (CCIB)

This tour includes a visit to the Codorniu winery, a huge centre for the production of cava following the traditional methods of fermentation and storage of  the sparkling wine in quiet cold caves excavated in limestone. After the cellars the guests will visit Sitges, a fashionable beach resort in which one can find a unique blend of sophisticated and plain tourism with one of the highest densities of artists per square meter of the Mediterranean Coast.

Artists, such as Rusiñol or Utrillo, already discovered its charm at the end of the XIXth century. The Cau Ferrat Museum, former residence of Rusiñol, and also the Maricel Museum, display beautiful samples of the Catalan modern arts. Lunch in Sitges is included in the tour.
