On our Costa Brava holidays, we’ll see the best sights in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia and one of Spain’s most exciting cities. It’s home to many architectural gems created by Antoni Gaudi such as La Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. We’ll also explore the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter in the old part of the city and there will be plenty of time to discover Barcelona at your own pace.
Explore the Pyrenees and experience one of the most scenic railway journeys in the world with us. On our Little Trains of the Pyrenees guided holiday, we’ll be staying in Costa Brava in the lovely seaside town of Roses. On our various and wonderful train journeys through the Pyrenees, we’ll discover the Spanish side and French side of this mighty mountain range, which divides the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe.
Girona or the “City of the Four Rivers”is a small Catalan city, yet it is full of rich history and colourful architecture. We’ll take a walking tour through the Old Jewish Quarter, see the Santa Maria Cathedral and the colourful houses ‘Les Cases de l'Onyar’.
Founded in the 10th Century, the Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat is located high in the mountains overlooking the Costa Brava coast. The Abbey is a key symbol of Catalan nationalism, as it was used as a hiding place for many of Franco’s opponents during his reign. We’ll visit this religious site and there will be an opportunity to explore further by taking the funicular up the mountain.
