A round trip to spectacular villages and cities where time stopped !


Barcelona is wonderful, but there is so much more to discover in Catalonia.
Catalonia has a rich history, beautiful and varied landscapes and amazing local food and wine. Getting out of its capital to explore the area is an absolute must ! There are a number of gorgeous, medieval villages that are worth the drive out of the city, like Castellfollit de la Roca, Banyoles , Besalu . . .
Most of these can be only reached by car, as they are planted in the middle of the beautiful volcanic Catalan countryside. Journey back in time as you discover these charming medieval villages and stunning countryside outside Barcelona on this 8 hours tour so don't doubt taking a day out to visit these beautiful medieval villages in Catalonia! I can create a customized tour for you if you have any special requests or if you are more than 6 people and need a larger vehicle !

As the journey takes about 1 and a half we will have a short stop at the most picturesque medieval part of of the city of Girona just for photos .
