TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Embark on a journey back in time as you are picked up from your Barcelona accommodation by your guide. Relax in the comfort of a private vehicle, exclusively for you and your guide, who doubles as your driver. As you travel, your guide will regale you with fascinating stories and insights about the medieval treasures you're about to explore, setting the scene against the backdrop of picturesque landscapes en route.

Your first destination is Vic, a town of significant medieval importance in Catalonia, rebuilt after its destruction during the Saracen invasion in the 9th century. Stroll through Vic on a guided walking tour, feeling the medieval essence of the city as you meander around Plaça Major, Vic's largest square. Here, admire the Casa Comella, an elegant 19th-century modernist palace, and bask in the lively atmosphere of the Main Square, a hub for fairs, markets, and concerts. Delve deeper into Vic’s rich history with a visit to the Cathedral. This architectural marvel showcases a timeline of European architectural styles, from Romanesque to Neoclassical, through Gothic and Baroque periods. Discover unique historical elements like the Roman Temple and the captivating paintings by Josep María Sert within the Cathedral. Take some time to enjoy Vic on your own, perhaps sampling the local Catalan cuisine.

Your medieval odyssey continues to enchanting villages such as Santa Pau and Castellfollit de la Roca, each with its own legends and unique allure. Marvel at Castellfollit de la Roca, perched atop a dramatic 40-meter high basalt cliff, offering spectacular photo opportunities.

Fall under the spell of Santa Pau, nestled in the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. Wander its streets to absorb the medieval ambiance, a blend of Gothic and Renaissance, hinting at the barony's significance during the Middle Ages.

Conclude your tour with a visit to Besalú, a beautifully preserved medieval town recognized as a Historical and Artistic National Monument in 1996. Traverse its narrow lanes leading to the town center, uncovering the legacy of the Jewish community from the Middle Ages. Much of the original 12th-century town walls and ancient gateways stand to this day, encircling the old town—a testament to Besalú's storied past. The highlight of Besalú is its iconic medieval bridge, celebrated throughout Catalunya for offering picturesque views that capture the essence of medieval architecture and charm. This bridge serves as a perfect culmination to your medieval tour, leaving you with lasting impressions of Catalunya's rich history and architectural beauty.
