Medieval Villages and Nature (9h)

This is a daytrip to travel back in time. Small villages that have rest isolated in the mountains, frozen in time and hardly, 50 years ago, open to the civilization. A mix of history and nature… the deep Catalonia.

Volcanos created a landscape of cliffs and beech forests. Cliffs that interrupted the course of rivers leaving waterfalls and lakes.
These conditions made difficult the communication between the big cities and these small villages on the top of the cliff; therefore, we find medieval villages with Romanesque churches; mountains; cliffs; lakes and beech forests with little presence of the human step.

The real taste of Catalonia: beans of Santa Pau and cold meat from these lands are a reference in Catalonia that we won’t miss.
