You’ll get to explore the Medieval village of Pals today, which is tucked away in the north of Spain. The day starts with you boarding a trolley train for a ride through the region’s rustic countryside. On board, you’ll learn all about the process of rice-making – famous in this part of the country. Through carriage speakers, a guide will chart the entire journey of the paella-staple, from the seeding of the paddies to the harvest of the grain, and the grinding at the mill to its final merchandising. Plus, you’ll get to soak up views of the vast rice fields and the soaring Montrgri Mountain on the way. There’ll be a stop at a traditional 15th-century rice mill before you head to Pals, too. When you get to the village, the time is yours to spend however you fancy. Be sure to pass through the Gothic Quarter, with its 4th-century towers, stone balconies and arched windows.
Although this is an easy walking tour, it's not recommended for wheelchair users as there’s an optional moderate walking tour and cobbled streets in Pals.
