Barcelona

  • Take a trip around Barcelona

    In total, this drive takes approximately 10 hours, so take your time and turn this journey into a four- or five-day exploration of this stunning region of North Eastern Spain. This round trip allows you to take in the best that the Catalonian region has to offer.

  • Montserrat

    Not only is this Benedictine abbey considered to be Catalonia’s most important religious retreat, but on a clear day, a view of all of Mallorca is visible from the mountaintop.

    Try and get there in time to hear the boys choir that sings at 1pm every day Unique rock formations make this destination special, and offers climbing enthusiasts the opportunity to hike up the mountain. If hiking isn’t your thing, then you can drive right up the mountain, where there is free parking at the top.If the weather is nice, bring a picnic and eat at the top of the mountain and take in the surrounding scenery.

  • Andorra

    If you fancy hitting the slopes for a day or two and are looking for a change of scene, why not hop in the car and embark on a scenic three-hour drive up to Andorra.

    Sandwiched between the French and Spanish border and arguably one of the world’s most renowned skiing and hiking destinations, it is an ideal alternative away from other, more populated slopes elsewhere in the region. The capital, Andorra la Vella, offers great value duty free shopping.

  • Figueres

    Make sure to check out the Dali theatre museum, one of the most popular and visited Spanish museums dedicated to Salvador Dali, arguably the most famous surrealist artist of the 20th century.

    It’s like nothing you will have ever seen before and will only set you back 12 euros for a visit.

  • Cadaques

    Cadaques, known as the ‘Pearl of Costa Brava’, was a favourite destination for Picasso.

    This crystal clear, well preserved bay is a tranquil location for relaxing, romantic or family-orientated visits and is relatively protected from mass tourism

    Around Port Lligat you will find the family home of artist Salvador Dali, which is open to the public. In fact, several of his paintings featured various areas within Port Lligat.

  • Girona

    A historic city saturated with stunning medieval buildings. Unlike other parts of Spain, Girona isn’t heavily dependent on tourism, with a consistently chilled aura all year round.

    Its narrow, cobbled streets give it a romantic feel – so it’s ideal for a romantic stroll. Go for a walk around the beautiful Jewish quarter, which not only has great food but is also ideal for antique shopping. We also recommend a visit to the cathedral, which has the widest gothic nave in Europe and beautiful gardens (the Passeig Archeologic) behind it, so be sure to check it out.
