Catalonia. Romanesque art and architecture between the mountains

Discover some of the best European Romanesque monuments, in northern Catalonia, together with medieval villages, beautiful landscapes and a superb gastronomy.

  • TOUR

    In the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees, surrounded by spectacular landscapes, we find the Valle del Boí which is, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    Our route starts with a visit to a winery in the city of Lleida, followed with visits to picturesque villages that have the largest amount of Romanesque architecture in Europe; churches and hermitages built between X and XIII Centuries when the Christian kingdoms reconquered the last Arab kingdoms of western Catalonia.

    Due to their perfectly perserved state, they are able to transmit harmony against an impressive backdrop of the Pyrenees.

    During our four-day all-inclusive package tour, you will stay in 4-star accommodation where you can enjoy thermal therapies with views of the Agüestortes National Park, which can be explored with a short and gentle hike.

    Local farmers will explain their produce to you, which you will be able to taste as you try the local cuisine, in excelent and warm family restaurants nestled between the mountains.
