The Grand Tour of Catalonia is a circular route to discover Catalonia’s essence. It connects cultural heritage, natural landscapes, and food and wine pleasures, which define this land’s personality, in both cultural and urban environments.

About

Figueres to Barcelona

The landscapes and works of the great Salvador Dalí are the start of a journey during which we will not only enjoy the diverse Catalan cuisine but also learn how to prepare some of its most iconic dishes. We will get to know the ancient methods of curing foods, listen to legends, and walk through romantic forests and along the same Camins de Ronda de la Costa Brava that were walked by pirates and outlaws. Modernist architecture will shape our visit to the towns on the Maresme coast and Barcelona, a city that has inspired great works of literature.

Itinerary

All year round

The universe of Dalí in L’Empordá marks the start of a journey that takes us through the evocative landscapes of L’Empordà and natural settings as beautiful as those of Cap de Creus and the Bay of Roses.

The morning begins with a tour of the charming medieval towns of Empordanet, where we follow in footsteps of Josep Pla, and Palamós where we put on our aprons and discover the secrets of seafood cuisine.

Tossa de Mar and a section of the Camins de Ronda of Costa Brava occupy our morning. The day continues with the monumental gardens of Lloret de Mar, the flavours of Girona and the arrival in the sweet town of Hostalets d’en Bas in La Garrotxa.

The profile of the Collsacabra marks the first kilometres of a day during which we will follow the River Ter to see Manlleu’s industrial heritage, to try Vic sausages and to stroll through the lush forests of Montseny.

The modernist heritage of the coastal towns of Maresme precedes our arrival in Barcelona, but not before we stop at Alella to sample some of the wines that were spoken of as early as Roman times. The best modernist buildings by Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner, the craftsmanship of the trencadís, the most traditional Catalan cuisine and a literary walk through the Born district complete our first day in Barcelona.
