Catalonia is a vast region which can be divided into north and south. If a tourist wishes to get a good feel of Catalonia but has only a couple of days to spare, this would be a good option to consider. The northern Catalonia tour is designed to take up only 2 days as it covers Vic, Girona, Figueres and Montserra from Barcelona. This is a great tour option for busy executives who come to Barcelona on work commitments but can prolong their stay for a couple of days afterwards.

Destination coverage

This two-day northern Catalonia tour covers Vic, Girona, Figueres and Montserrat. There are many interesting discoveries at the Figueres Salvador Dali Museum as well as the magical Girona with its medieval buildings and lifestyle. Montserrat offers tourists an amazing view of the world-famous monastery.

Tourists would love Vic which is an old market town. There are many quaint sights with an ancient cathedral that has a mixture of styles. There are buildings built in Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque and neoclassical styles that are most impressive. Art lovers would enjoy Figueres which is the hometown of famous artists Salvador Dali at a special museum with a theatre. Surrealistic artwork can be viewed at leisure.

The second day of the tour offers Girona which is a beautiful walled city where a refreshing walk through the town’s Jewish quarter is available. The cobbled streets and homes are well preserved which would amaze any tourist. The labyrinth of cobbled narrow streets makes the walk an adventure through the previous Moorish occupation. There are interesting Arabian baths and Roman public baths to be viewed and enjoyed.

Well positioned, Montserrat looms majestically for the most panoramic view of the surroundings. Its impressive peak at 1,235 meters offers an astounding backdrop to the Royal Basilica monastery with Catalonia’s patron saint’s statue, the Virgin of Montserrat.
