Description

We'll start your day early in the morning in Besalú, a well-preserved medieval town known for its impressive architecture and historical atmosphere. Upon arrival, we will cross the famous fortified bridge dating from the 11th century, an iconic structure that offers photogenic views of the river and the town. Once you've crossed the bridge, we'll explore the town centre, which feels like a trip back in time with its cobbled streets and old buildings. We will tour the streets and the old Jewish Quarter. Among other gems there is a Jewish ritual bath dating from the 12th century, one of the few of its kind preserved in Europe. We continue through the Plaza Mayor, where you can see the church of Sant Vicenç and other medieval buildings. On the way back we will take time to walk through the small shops selling crafts and local products. We will take our vehicle to the town of Tossa de Mar. There a Mediterranean Paella awaits us with views of the sea. Paella, an iconic Spanish dish, is perfect for sharing and enjoying a relaxing lunch after a morning of sightseeing. After the spectacular lunch, we will take the opportunity to explore Vila Vella, the old walled city of Tossa, and its castle. This area is the only remaining fortified medieval city on the Catalan coast and offers spectacular sea views from its walls. Tossa de Mar is also known for its beautiful beaches and excellent cuisine, especially seafood dishes. We will walk through the narrow cobblestone streets, and have free time in the small shops and cafes in this picturesque setting.
