Medieval Costa Brava Private Tour
Take a one-day guided tour to Costa Brava, a National Geographic Top Travel Destination. Discover the enchantment of magic hidings, luxurious coves, and medieval villages. Experience a natural paradise only one hour away from Barcelona.
The tour begins with a visit to Calella de Palafrugell, a picturesque coastal village peppered with small coves and colored rowboats.
From the village we will walk along the Ronda Promenade that follows the seaside to El Golfet, an unspoiled hidden cove surrounded by luxuriant vegetation of unbeatable beauty. At this beach we will have free time to enjoy its pristine waters.
Then we will set off for L’Estartit, a place of reference for scuba diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. Here we will have two hours for lunch (njot included) at one of the surrounding fish and seafood restaurants before embarking for an hour and a half on a glass-bottomed catamaran to the Natural Reserve of the Medas Islands. During the trip we will observe the seabed and sail along the paradise coves of Macizo del Montgrí until reaching the astonishing Roca Foradada.
In the afternoon we will set off for Pals, a medieval historical monumental ensemble consisting of the castle, the village and the fortified walls. Towering over Pals there is the Torre de las Horas, a Romanesque tower built between 11th and 13th Centuries. We will spend one hour traversing the gothic quarters and narrow and steep alleys of this medieval town.
From Pals we will set out on our way back to Barcelona where we will say goodbye at 7:30 pm.
