What you can expect

Travel back in time to an era when kings, knights, and charming villages blossomed on this small-group tour to 3 of the best-preserved medieval towns of Spain: Besalú, Tavertet, and Rupit.

Sit back, relax, and take in the evergreen vistas of the countryside as you head north towards Besalú. Upon arrival, walk along the arcaded streets with your guide, visit a restored mikveh (a bath for ritual immersion in Judaism), and see the remains of a medieval synagogue. Next, along your way to Rupit, pass Castellfollit de la Roca, one of Catalonia's smallest towns.

In Rupit you have time to explore this enchanting village on your own. Get insider tips from your guide and follow in the footsteps of local inhabitants who built 16th-century country houses that still stand. Cross the hanging wooden bridge and spend some time at the Church of Sant Miquel, a Baroque-style building, before you admire the remains of the Rupit Castle at the top of a rocky peak.

Next, take a drive to the top of the Cingles de Tavertet sandstone cliffs. In the village of Tavertet, a proud holder of the National Property of Cultural Interest title, follow your guide through narrow, cobbled streets and marvel at the 48 beautifully preserved houses from the 17th and 18th centuries.
