What to Expect
Discover the history and beauty of Catalonia on a 1-day trip to Girona and the Costa Brava.
Start your day in Barcelona at 8:30, and head to Girona, a well established city with a fascinating history. Explore its streets, and admire its rich architecture. See the cathedral, established in 1038 on the site of a former Mosque. Visit historical museums such as the Jewish Call and the Arab Bath house. Stroll around the colorful streets of the old town or sit down to have a cup of coffee and watch people walk by.
Then on to the fairytale-like city of Pals, a small medieval village that came about from what was once a fortress. From Pals, head to the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, a beach village with whitewashed houses that ramble all the way down to the sea front. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the traditional restaurants, and spend the afternoon exploring the rocky coastline, visiting the botanic gardens at Cap Roig, or taking a refreshing dip in the inviting waters of the Mediterranean.
Arrive back in Barcelona at 19:30.
