From Barcelona we head to the historic town of GIRONA, where the remains of its Roman and medieval past coexist with the present, offering an image full of contrasts. Get lost in its maze of narrow streets and get ready to travel through time in the Jewish neighborhood best preserved in Europe, admire the Cathedral with the widest Gothic nave in the world or being surprised by the colorful spectacle of the houses along the Onyar River, which divides the city in two.
Whether from the various bridges across the river or from the top of its medieval walls, Girona always treats us to a different and exciting panorama.
After this walking tour by Girona, we will drive to the COSTA BRAVA. But before we delve completely into nature we will stop at the beautiful PALS. This ancient medieval village, that once was a fortress, today is full of idyllic cobbled streets and plazas. Its towers and viewpoints will show you the best views of the Mediterranean Sea, enraged by the Tramontana wind, and will allow you to see the fields and Empordà plains, extending to the horizon.
Next, the most breathtaking pictures of the Catalan coast will open to you: the green of the mountains, the sheer relief of the coast and small villages of whitewashed houses coexist with the swell on the Costa Brava. We will stop in CALELLA DE PALAFRUGELL; a small traditional fishing village that still retains all the charm of yesteryear. Before exploring the surrounding area, relax tasting its cuisine, seafood tradition.
In the vicinity of Calella you will have the opportunity to discover the most pristine corners of the region thanks to the 'Caminos de ronda' - ancient pathways used by fishermen, watchmen and smugglers - that allow you to explore this virgin coastal scenery to your liking: from the most popular beaches in the area until the most inaccessible coves and cliffs, you can always take a dip in crystal clear water, surrounded by unspoiled nature.
