Medieval beautiful villages around Barcelona

Barcelona is wonderful, but there is so much more to discover in Catalonia.

Catalonia has a rich history, beautiful and varied landscapes, and amazing local food and wine. Getting out of its capital to explore the area is an absolute must! There are a number of gorgeous, medieval villages that are worth the drive out of the city, like Castellfollit de la Roca, Banyoles, Besalu. Most of these can be only reached by car, as they are planted in the middle of the beautiful volcanic Catalan countryside.

Our journey ends up here and it is time to go back. With the feeling of discovering these charming medieval villages and stunning countryside outside Barcelona take a day out to visit them again in the future.
