THE TOWN: Sant Cugat del Vallès  (pop. 81,745 in 2010) is a town 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 historical county where the town is situated, Vallès. The town’s other buildings include the School of Architecture of the Vallès and the Centre d’Alt Rendiment. Sant Cugat has become an affluent suburb of Barcelona due to its location (only 20 kilometres from the city), its natural surroundings, and its pedestrian shopping area. It also offers restaurants, a co ncert venue, two cinemas, and one large shopping centre. The town has its own train station with a direct metro connection into Barcelona city centre.
