A unique getaway to Catalonia
You always look for the most interesting destinations with the most authentic activities for your holidays. You like enjoying exclusive experiences and learning more about the land, far from the crowds. We invite you to make a unique getaway to Catalonia!
Barcelona is one of the must-sees on this getaway: gazing down at the city’s coastline from high in a luxury hotel; enjoying dinner alone in one of the most unique Gaudí buildings; going shopping for singular, handcrafted items; tasting wines on a sailboat; or staying at a unique hotel in the midst of vineyards half an hour from the capital of Catalonia.
We know that you like fine dining, and Catalan cuisine has fairly ancient roots. We suggest local cooking, marked by the Catalan landscapes. Sample the dishes crafted by some of the local cooking collectives. For example, try the suquet de peix fish soup or the arròs a la cassola rice dish from L’Empordanet, all based on a sofregit with powerful onions. Or Santa Pau peas or recuit curd, the stars of Volcanic Cuisine crafted in the land of volcanoes.
Catalonia is a very powerful destination for wines and gourmet cuisine: food and wines go hand in hand and feature in any celebration. Enjoy unique wines with a personality of their own, including 11 designations of origin for wine and one for cava sparkling wine. Discover the wines of Álvaro Palacios, the kosher wine of Celler de Capçanes and newer and more innovative projects like Venus Universal with Sara Pérez and René Barbier, the children of those first visionaries who transformed Priorat wine. Or sample the wines made in the Pyrenees, like those of Coster del Sió.
Head to the Catalan Pyrenees and discover the series of Romanesque churches in the Vall de Boí. It is said that a stay in those quiet green valleys is one way of touching heaven. Combine culture and hikes through the Pyrenean trails with relaxation at the spa in Caldes de Boí.
If you prefer more urban culture, Tarragona conserves the largest Roman archaeological site in Europe. While there, enjoy the wines of the Tarragona designation of origin and vermouth from Reus, the city where Gaudí was born. Discover the famous architect’s origins in a unique tour of the spaces of his childhood, and visit more of the many Art Nouveau buildings in this city.
