Summary

Explore the beautiful region of Catalonia including its cities of Barcelona, Aigua Blava, L'Escala, Roses, Cadaqués and Figueras during this unforgettable, 5-day tour.

Itinerary

Day 1, Barcelona - Aigua Blava
Pick up the rent a car and drive to Aigua Blava,  a small bay on the Costa Brava, near Begur and Palafrugell with a small beach (busy in the summer months) and a few mainly seafood restaurants. It is a popular mooring place for sailing and motor boats. Overlooking the bay on one side is a large Parador Hotel situated high on a clifftop. On the other side of the bay is Fornells. Overnight stay in Aigua Blava.

Day 2, Aigua Blava - Gerona - L'Escala - Pals
Breakfast. Today, will drive to Gerona for free time to visit and continue to L'Escala. L'Escala is a municipality in the comarca of the Alt Empordà in Girona. It is situated on the Costa Brava, located between the southern end of the Gulf of Roses and Cala (bay) Montgó. It is an important fishing port and tourist centre, and has a festival dedicated to its famous anchovies. Continue to Pals. Overnight stay in to Pals.

Day 3, Pals - Roses
Breakfast. Morning, free time to enjoy this beautiful town. In the afternoon, departure to Roses, a municipality in the comarca of the Alt Empordà in Catalonia. It is situated on the coast at the northern end of the Gulf of Roses, and is an important fishing port and tourist centre. The origins of Roses (Greek: Rhode) are disputed. A popular theory holds it was founded in the 8th century BC by Greek colonists from Rhodes. It seems more probable, however, that it was founded in the 5th century BC by Greeks from Massalia (Marseilles), perhaps with an admixture of colonists from neighbouring Emporion (today's Empúries). Remains of the Greek settlement can still be seen. Remains from the Roman period go back to the 2nd century BC and continue well into Christian times with a paleochristian church and necropolis. After the collapse of Roman power the town seems to have been abandoned, but a fortified settlement from the Visigothic period has been excavated on the nearby Puig Rom. Overnight stay in Roses.

Day 4, Roses - Cadaques
Breakfast. Today, we will make excursions around Roses, and you can visit Cadaques, a town in the Alt Empordà comarca, in the province of Girona. It is on a bay in the middle of the Cap de Creus peninsula, near Cap de Creus cape, on the Costa Brava of the Mediterranean. Cadaqués has a special place in art history. Commanding charcoals, by local artist Mei Fren, of the 19th century Cadaqués beleaguered by a winter Tramontane, can be seen at the Cadaqués museum. Fren was the first modern artist to live in adaqués and gave the town many of his works and a marble top table on which he sketched many of its turn-of-the-century fishermen.Salvador Dalí often visited Cadaqués in his childhood, and later kept a home in Port Lligat, a small village on a bay next to the town. A summer holiday here in 1916, spent with the family of Ramon Pichot is seen as especially important to Dalí's artistic career. Other notable artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Antoni Pitxot, Henri-François Rey, Melina Mercouri and Maurice Boitel also spent time here. Cadaqués is mentioned in the story Tramontana by Gabriel García Márquez. Overnight stay in Roses.

Day 5, Roses - Figueras - Barcelona
Breakfast. Leaving Roses and driving to Figueras. Free time to visit the Dali Museum and leisure time for lunch. Continue to Barcelona and drop off the car. End of the services.
