Barcelona

About the city

La Vanguardia is the name of one of the city’s newspaper, and the vanguard is exactly where Barcelonans are used to finding themselves, for they are residents of Spain’s most progressive city. Beautiful, sprawling Barcelona, filling a great basin ringed with hills on the western end of the Mediterranean, is the embodiment of Catalonia’s artistic genius and commercial inventiveness. Divided into 10 districts each with its own character, the Gothic Quarter is a splendid medieval quarter and the old part of town, which stretches from the seafront to La Rambla. It is here that you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings, narrow streets, churches and the cathedral, La Seu. It also has a good selection of bars, cafes and some quirky independent stores. La Rambla, the most famous street in the city, runs through the heart of the city and provides outdoor theatre on a grand scale. The famous Eixample holds many of Antoni Gaudi’s famous modernist buildings. By far the most famous and extravagant site in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. If he building is ever completed, it will lokk like a model in the crypt, in the meantime, don’t pass up the opportunity to climb or be lifted to the towers, and wander amid the bridges, steps and crannies of the façade. Barcelona is a great city for arts from opera to architecture, and the meeting point between Spain and the rest of Europe.

Small-Group Medieval Villages Day Trip from Barcelona

day 2 - Excursión de un día para grupos pequeños por los pueblos medievales desde Barcelona
Discover the beauty of Catalonia ’s medieval villages on this small-group day trip from Barcelona. 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.
