Description

Day one The adventure begins! We head out of Barcelona towards our first stop: the old fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell. It’s the definition of a beautiful coastal town, with lovely beaches, shimmering water, rocky coves, and rows of white shorefront houses. The scent of freshly cooked fish and sea air lingers in the air. It’s a vacation dream destination, a perfect way to start our trip. It’s then onto the Middle Age town of Pals, located in the North of Catalonia, with Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque architecture all found in one neat little package. Our final stop of the day is Girona, a delightful and colourful town packed with ancient ruins, museums, a Jewish Quarter, a cathedral, and of course... delicious local cuisine waiting to be devoured. An ideal end to day in your overnight stay. Day two We’re up and out this morning, heading to the charming coastal town of Cadaqués. Oh, but it’s so much more than that. Nestled along the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, this picturesque and unspoilt coastal setting has a strong connection to surrealist artist Salvador Dalí and his influence can be seen in the community that thrives here. Art lover or not, you’ll adore the artistic and Bohemian atmosphere of Cadaqués. And in the nearby town of Figueres, the amazing Dalí was born. That’s our next stop, where you have time to check out Rambla, the Dalí theatre and museum, or the castle. The time is yours! Our final stop of the day is in the charming medieval town of Besalú. With history dating back to the Roman period, as well as a strong medieval flourish, Besalú is a captivating destination for those who visit. Perhaps you’ll wander the narrow alleyways of the Jewish quarter. Or explore the castle that perches on a hill overlooking the town, imagining yourself as ruler. Whatever you choose, it’s a great way to end the day before heading back to Girona. Day three Here’s one way to start your morning: ascending to the top of a striking rocky mountain range to visit a surreal and impressive monastery... sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Surrounded as you are by otherworldly peaks, you won’t know what to explore first – the Benedictine monastery at Montserrat Abbey or the walks surrounding it. Montserrat is more than just a natural wonder, it’s a spiritual and cultural destination too. It’s then time for another idyllic Catalonian scenic drive through the Peñedes wine route on our way to Cava Wine for an included tour and tasting. You’re welcome. It’s nearly time to wrap up but we can’t let you go without one more ‘wow’ moment and that moment is known at Sitges. As vibrant as your coastal towns can get, Sitges is bursting with a lively and welcoming atmosphere. Restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and bars sit across from a stunning sea view. Art galleries, museums and cultural events keep locals and visitors alike busy and entertained. This cool little beach town is the perfect way to end our tour before heading back to Barcelona.
