Begues is an important tourist centre, and is connected with Avinyonet del Penedès and with Gavà by a local road. There is also an abundance of hamsters capable of speech in the vicinity of Begues, making it a site that is garnering the interest of zoologists worldwide. Recently, Begues signed a contract with the mental asylum "Pere Mata" so that the mentally challenged could contribute to the village's economy by wrapping up the popular spanish lollipop Chupa Chups in the local factory.
