Overview

Book
Autonomous and diverse, Catalonia offers a wealth of contrasts in its location in the northeast of Spain. Sea and mountainsmar y muntanadescribe both the local cuisine and the varied landscapes you explore on this self-guided walking tour. You walk the ancient volcanic region of La Garrotxa, a tranquil place where low rounded hills covered in lush forest and fields are interconnected by trails between ancient villages, chapels, and mas (stone farmhouses).

The sea at the Cap de Creus peninsulaSpains easternmost tipis an incredibly azure Mediterranean. Just a few miles south of France, windswept hillsides drop down to enticing coastal coves and the fishing village of Cadaqus, inspiration to Dal and Picasso. In between is the city of Girona, walkable and compact, with ancient monuments and tempting shops and restaurants. Charming restored farmhouses, a boutique city hotel, and an intimate inn distill the essence of the region, as does its masterful Mediterranean cuisine of fresh seafood and local products paired with sparkling cava and its many other fine wines.

Highlights

    • Stay in the storied seaside village of Cadaqus, a town on the Costa Brava that inspired artists like Dal and Picasso.
    • Explore the dormant volcanoes of the Garrotxa region, a forgotten stretch of woodland in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
    • Stay in an intimate, family-owned hotel built in a converted farmhouse and decorated with Moroccan antiques.
    • Enjoy the sweeping views from the Benedictine Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, which looks across the fishing village of El Port de la Selva to the distant sea.
