Spend a day visiting the medieval villages of Rupit and Besalú on this day trip from the Costa Brava. Head inland to hilltop Rupit whose quaint, cobblestone streets are thronged with centuries-old houses, and then continue to the village of Besalú, where you’ll learn about its history and culture on a guided walking tour. A traditional Catalan lunch at a local restaurant is included halfway through your tour.
At your Costa Brava hotel, you’ll climb aboard an air-conditioned coach destined for Catalonia’s picturesque medieval villages. Disembark first at Rupit — a historical village bursting with charm — to admire its cobbled streets and 16th-centruy houses during free time.
After greeting your guide at a prearranged location, you’ll enjoy a traditional Catalan lunch in a local restaurant: depending on the season, enjoy dishes containing fresh seafood and juicy tomatoes.
Sated, you’ll travel to Besalú to amble around the beautifully preserved streets of the village with your guide. As you listen to commentary, you’ll delve into the Christian and Jewish heritage of the town and see the ruins of a medieval synagogue.
Enjoy some relaxed free time to explore Besalú further before returning to your coach and returning to your original departure point in Costa del Sol.
