Just an hour from Barcelona, the first stop on your two-day small group tour of northern Catalonia's most famous attractions tour is the old market town of Vic. Here you will have a chance to stroll around the town center, admiring its cathedral (a mixture of styles ranging from Romanesque to neoclassical ) and its magnificent Renaissance and Baroque buildings, and relax or have lunch in the heart of the town, a beautiful arched square where the market and other major events are held.
Continue to Figueres, hometown of Salvador Dali, where you will have a tour of Salvador Dali Theatre-Museum and be amazed by Dali’s fascinating surrealist world.
On your second day visit the beautiful walled city of Girona, where you’ll enjoy a guided walking tour of the Jewish quarter (one of the best preserved in Europe) and see the exterior of the cathedral. Girona was originally built by the Romans as a fortress, and the best way to explore the medieval town is to lose yourself in the alluring labyrinth of narrow streets, which still reflect its two centuries of Moorish occupation. You'll have free time for lunch, as well as the option to explore the Arabian baths, a Roman building inspired by the Roman public baths, with three pools, each at a different water temperature.
After lunch, you will head to the incomparable setting of the craggy mountain of Montserrat, which rises majestically up from the plain to 4,051 feet (1,235 meters) and has amazing views. Enjoy a visit to the Benedictine monastery, founded in the 11th century. The Montserrat mountain provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia, who is worshiped at the shrine in the monastery's Royal Basilica.
