Sant Cugat del Valles

Sant Cugat del Vallès is a town and municipality north of Barcelona in Catalonia. Known as Castrum Octavianum in antiquity, it is named after Saint Cucuphas, who is said to have been martyred on the spot now occupied by its medieval monastery. The final part of its toponym, del Vallès, is a reference to the histroical county where the town is situated, Vallès.DescriptionThe town's other buildings include the School of Architecture of the Vallès and the Centre d'Alt Rendiment, a famous centre for professional sport training.Sant Cugat has become an affluent suburb of Barcelona due to its location, its natural surroundings, and its pedestrian shopping area.
