The ultimate tour

Buildings along the river in Girona, Spain

In just twelve hours, we embarked on a whirlwind adventure through mountains, ruins, and the beach, each representing a different city we visited all over Catalonia. Spain offers an overwhelming array of choices for exploration, but we were fortunate to discover a company that expertly curated a seamless experience for us. Boarding the bus promptly at 8:30 am, our first destination was Montserrat, which is 4,055 ft high. We then made our way to Girona, the city of Four Rivers, lastly we went to Tossa De Mar, a peaceful beach town with crystal-clear waters and roughly 5,600 residents.

While in Montserrat we found the fascinating story of the Black Madonna, a statue discovered in a cave in 718 and now housed in the Basilica. Legend has it that wishes made while kissing the ball held by the Black Madonna come true.

The highlight of this leg of our journey was exploring the filming locations featured in the renowned series “Game of Thrones.” Amidst the ancient buildings, we could envision the iconic scenes that unfolded in these historic settings.

Though our time here was brief, we chose to sit by the soothing sound of waves crashing against the rocky shore, a perfect conclusion to our unforgettable day of exploration.
