Remeiart came into existence in 2011 in Santa Margarida i els Monjos as a project to teach and disseminate knowledge about herbal remedies promoted by the Town Council with the collaboration of the local entities and economic fabric with the aim of promoting herbs in all their possible uses: health, welfare, food, botany, etc.

The Remeiart Fair is held every third Sunday in June at Penyafort Castle in Santa Margarida i els Monjos, and is entirely dedicated to the remedial herbs and all the products that can be made with them.

It is a fair designed to live it to the full, to enjoy strolling around smelling soaps, enjoying the crafts made with herbs, tasting liquors or food made with herbs or enjoying the wisdom of the people who make formulas to enhance health and well-being.

But it’s also a fair to learn. On the activities programme you will find a wide range of talks, workshops and activities that will help you spend the whole day with us.

Not forgetting a broad offer of workshops for the little ones, a picnic area with a bar, and the traditional herb sausages or a dotto train to access the Castle grounds.

The Transhumance Fair is held in October in els Monjos and gathers producers and artisans of products related to livestock, wine and cava.

The Fair is part of the ‘Camí Ramader de Marina. From Cerdanya to the Penedès’ livestock path project, which stems from the concern of the municipalities of Santa Margarida i els Monjos, Lluçà and Llívia, among other bodies and entities, to preserve, enhance and promote transhumance and livestock tracks in Catalonia, devoting special attention to the ancient transhumant route that has allowed the movement of herds between the Pyrenees and the coast to the Penedès and the Garraf, since the middle ages.

The partnership agreement signed by the three municipalities demonstrates the desire to unite efforts and create synergies with the common goal of enhancing this historical, cultural and environmental heritage, and turn it into a resource to develop the economy and tourism at local and regional levels.
