Spain’s north eastern region of Catalunya is overflowing with ancient medieval villages. On yet another glorious September day we took the car out to discover and explore what they had to offer.
Our last week on the Costa Brava saw us venturing further afield and heading inland, north west of Girona, to visit the Parc Natural de la Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxa. This park contains 40 volcanic cones, 20 basalt lava flows and numerous small medieval villages.
After the winding drive along the rugged and spectacular Catalan coast of the Costa Brava we finally saw our destination – Tossa de Mar. The thing that immediately struck us was the walled ramparts and towers we could see on the promontory above the beach.
Read about our walks on the Camino de Ronda – a walking trail that follows the Costa Brava coast from Blanes to Portbou just before the border with France.
This week can be summed up in two words – bike riding.
