One-day guided tour to the past: Girona, Pals and Peratallada

One day guided tour to explore the route of medieval villages, the living testimonial of the Kingdom of Catalonia's golden age, in the intimate atmosphere of a small group.


The tour begins at Girona, an ancient city of Iberian origins. After visiting the Old quarters or Barri Vell, one of the most evocative in Catalonia, we will stroll through its colourful streets to discover historical sites such as the Jewish Quarters, the Arab Baths and the Gothic Cathedral, built in 1038 on the site of a former mosque.

Then we will continue journey to Pals, a medieval historical monumental ensemble formed by the castle, the town walls and the Romanesque tower, built between the 11th and 13th centuries, known as the Tower of the Hours.

Our last destination, Peratallada, is one of the best-preserved medieval villages in Catalonia, still retaining its old feudal aspect. Here we will have free time for lunch and leisurely explore its narrow winding streets to discover the fortified castle, the keep, the palace, the walls and the Church of Sant Esteve.

From Peratallada we will return to Barcelona where we will say goodbye at 7.30h. pm.
