Description

We visit 3 medieval villages: Besalú (´The fortress between two rivers´), Rupit (An enchanting stone village), and Tavertet (perched on sandstone cliffs promises stunning views over Catalonia). Three medieval gems. Each one unique. We will travel back in time a 1000 years. This tour offers cultural immersion, nature exploration, breathtaking views, lots of medieval history and more. It´s an all-round and immersive experience. An ideal city-escape and deep-dive into Catalonia´s fascinating history... Our day starts at your accommodation when we pick you up around 8.30AM. Our first drive will take approx. hour and a half. At Besalú, a protected National Historic Monument, we will start with an introduction about the history and we'll enjoy spectacular views of the old city before crossing the iconic 11th-century medieval bridge and we walk into the old town. Then, a walking tour to explore the narrow alleys of centuries-old architecture and covering the main highlights. Afterwards, you will have some free time to go explore on your own. We will provide you with a general understanding about the history of Catalonia (& Spain) and this will set a solid foundation. Our visit to Besalú will be a great way to start our day. We spend about hour and a half here, our next drive takes approx. 1 hour. What´s next? Rupit. The medieval stone-village hidden in the forest and built into the rock. Its cobblestone streets are enchanting. We will first need to cross the famous ´hanging´ bridge to enter the town. Once inside it´s like entering a fairytale. We will do a short guided walking tour, pointing out highlights for you, things that you can do and giving suggestions for places to eat. You will have lunch in your own time (and on own expenses). This is your opportunity to try the real Catalonian cuisine! Very authentic and very delicious. There are also beautiful hiking trails in the area, the nature is stunning, plus you can explore the town a bit more in your free time. We take plenty of time here so you can enjoy a great lunch + exploration. One more town to go! Tavertet. But, before we get to the town we will cross an area with stunning natural beauty and a mindblowing viewpoint. We´ll be in the heart of the natural reserve of Collsacabra with the unique cliffs of Tavertet and overlooking the plains of Catalunya state, from the Costa Brava coastline to the Pyrenees mountains. We visit Tavertet with it´s 1000+year old church and more spectacular views before we hear back to Barcelona city. We will drive a big circle through Catalunya so you get to see as much as possible in between towns. The last drive can take 1.45¨ back to BCN city. We bring you straight back to your accommodation and we conclude a joyful day around 6.30PM.
