It connects cultural heritage, natural landscapes, and food and wine pleasures, which define this land’s personality, in both cultural and urban environments.

About

La Seu d’Urgell to Figueres

The village that inspired a genius, Pablo Picasso, will be our first stop on this route, which will take us down the path of the Cathars’ exile, to discover a magical mountain, and to Ripoll where we will learn that bibles can also be made of stone. We will walk through enchanted forests that served as refuges for poets and float in balloons over a landscape of dozens of volcanoes. We will visit medieval villas and discover the culinary secrets of the many Catalan recipes that originated here. The route will end in another village that also became a muse, Figueres, Salvador Dalí’s home town.

Itinerary

All year round

The route begins at La Seu d’Urgell, visiting Catalonia’s only fully Romanesque Cathedral, and explore the lands of Berguedà, where the silhouette of the Pedraforca will accompany us for much of the day.

In La Cerdanya, we travel through small villages with rustic mountain architecture and taste excellent sausages before continuing to Castellar de N’Hug to see the source of the Llobregat river.

Ripoll’s stunning Santa María portico is a prelude to a visit to the natural setting of the Núria sanctuary. With a box of Camprodon biscuits under our arm, we pass through such lovely villages as Beget and Castellfollit de la Roca.
The thrill of flying over the ancient volcanoes of La Garrotxa kicks off a day that continues with a stroll through the shops of Olot, a taste of Santa Pau’s mongetes and ends with a night under the stars.
After watching the sunrise over the Lake of Banyoles, we enjoy kayaking and swimming in its waters. We continue to Besalú to learn about its Jewish legacy and end our journey in Figueres to retrace Dalí’s first steps.
