Description

Meet your guide in central Barcelona and relax in a comfortable minivan as you take in views of the green countryside on the 90-minute drive to Besalu.

Upon arrival, you'll enjoy a guided walking tour of this beautifully preserved village from the Middle Ages. See the town's arcaded streets, visit a restored mikveh (an old Jewish bath from the 12th century) and see the remains of a medieval synagogue.

Continue by minivan toward the village of Rupit and pass by the Castellfollit de la Roca - one of the smallest towns in Catalonia with only 1,000 inhabitants in just 3,280 square feet located on the edge of a basalt precipice. Enjoy 2 hours of free time once we arrive in the beautiful village of Rupit. Wander along the cobblestone streets lined with 16-century country houses, stop by the hanging wooden bridge and visit the Baroque Church of Sant Miguel.

Have lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) and see the remains of the Castle of Rupit on a rocky peak.

Next, enjoy a scenic drive to the top of the Cingles de Tavertet sandstone cliffs, located by the Ter river valley. Pass by a megalithic tomb -- a field of funerary urns -- and the Iberian Wall until you reach the village of Tavertet. With your guide, visit this charming village, declared a National Property of Cultural Interest due to its 48 preserved houses from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Learn interesting facts about this village as you admire the houses and the 11th-century Romanesque Church of Sant Cristòfol. Enjoy a short break to grab a coffee at a local café (own expense) or walk to the viewpoint to admire stunning views over the Panta de Sau lake.

Then, relax on the drive back to Barcelona and take in views of El Magatalls, a beautiful lush forest, and El Montseny, a UNESCO Man and Biosphere-listed natural park.
