For a genuine snapshot of regional Spain, this tour is ideal. This panoramic tour by coach gives you the chance to see as much as possible of the beautiful scenery that Banyoles has to offer. In this city of 15,000 residents the highlight is the vast lake in its centre. It’s the largest in Catalonia, has hosted a number of rowing events including the 1992 Olympics, and is still a popular training location. Afterwards we’ll travel down the road to Besalu, where you’ll have the opportunity to see one of the most well-preserved Medieval towns in Catalonia. We’ll also visit the Monastery of Saint Peter, a Benedictine monastery with very distinctive carvings. Finally, we’ll encounter the town’s key landmark, the Viejo Bridge. Originally built to help defend Besalu, the bridge’s two towers cast an imposing shadow. You’ll then have some free time to explore on your own, before we head back to Roses.
