Full description
Start your tour from your hotel, and get picked-up by your guide in a comfy private minivan to start your tour. Pass by Barcelona’s main highlights, have a look to the Plaça Catalunya, Barcelona’s central square, that connects to the avenue Passeig de Grácia, an elegant boulevard that hosts a wealth of modernist architecture like the famous Gaudi’s Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, but also the amazing Casa Ametller and Casa Lleo i Morera. Continue the journey heading to Vic, a town that offers visitors one of the most memorable medieval settings in all Catalonia region. Due to the town’s destruction and reconstruction after the Saracen invasion in the 9th Century, Vic has been completely rebuilt. A whole new city grew around some of Catalunya’s most important landmarks, including the Episcopal Museum, Cathedral and Main Square (also home of a popular weekly market). Get to know important corners of the medieval city, including the paintings of Josep Maria Sert in the Cathedral, and the Roman temple. Discover the history and hidden secrets of these wonderful relics along the way. After the walking tour and before to head to the next destination, savor authentic Catalan cuisine for lunch in one of the best places, recommended by your guide.

Enjoy a walking tour through one of the most charming towns of Historic Catalunya, in the company of your guide and take the chance to walk down along the beautiful medieval streets of this town, visiting the main square. Stop at the foot of Castellfollit de la Roca, a spectacular medieval town that hangs from the edge of a basalt cliff. This is a great place to take some photos while enjoying the view. End your back-in-time journey at the final and most important stop of the tour, Besalú. With its incredibly rich heritage and wide array of monuments, Besalú offers visitors one of the best-preserved medieval settings of Catalonia. The town was even classified a Historical and Artistic National Monument in 1966. Our guide will explain the importance of the Jewish community that once resided in the city, from the 9th to the 15th century, and share with you the patrimonial inheritance that this community left behind.
