Detailed Description

Meet your guide in central Barcelona and relax in a comfortable minivan as you
take in views of the green countryside on the 1.5-hour drive to Besalú.


When you arrive, 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. On the way, pass by
Castellfollit de la Roca, one of the smallest towns in Catalonia with 1,000
habitants in just 3,280 square feet (1,000 square meters), located on the edge
of a basalt precipice.

When you arrive in Rupit, enjoy two hours of free time to
visit this beautiful village at your own leisure. Wander along the cobblestone
streets lined with 16th-century country houses, stop by the hanging wooden
bridge, and visit the Baroque-era Church of Sant Miquel. 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.
