Vilanova del Camí is a municipality in the comarca of the Anoia in Catalonia, Spain. The name literally means "New Town of the Route", the route being the road from Igualada to Vilafranca del Penedès (now the C-244). It is situated in the centre of the Òdena Basin immediately to the south-east of Igualada. The town is served by a station on the FGC railway line R6 from Barcelona and Martorell to Igualada. There are several sizable industrial parks, serving the entire area.
