What to expect

Take in views of the green countryside on a 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.

In Rupit enjoy two hours of free time to 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 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. 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.

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.
