Awaken and pass in the imagination through the walls. Overlooking the treetops that make up the nested forest of Vimbodí and walking in the shade of its paths, with the murmur of the nearby streams, the birds awakening and the freshness of the dawn in the middle of nature. Castell de Riudabella, one of the jewels of architecture and medieval essence of Catalonia, puts you on a platter in this parallel world of unique sensations and invites you to enjoy an experience that will take you directly to the Middle Ages.

Managed in an impeccable way, with passion for small details and for maintaining at all times that halo of magic that gives it its historical majesty, Castell de Riudabella is one of the most exclusive accommodations you will find in the portfolio of Lu&Bo Luxury & Boutique Hotels.

The interior decoration of the hotel is impressive and proposes a view of what the castle could perfectly have been the castle in its origin (the walled construction, in fact, dates from the XII century). Large windows with spectacular draperies, high ceilings with wooden beams, handicraft doors, doors capable of keeping any secret, endless corridors, ancient books, medieval costumes and an exceptional signature wine cellar where you can find some of the most delicious and best cultivated wines from the Penedés basin.
