Day Trips around Catalonia



A half-day tour to discover the secrets of Hostalric and its spectacular military fortress

The medieval town of Hostalric -one hour by car or train from Barcelona- has been declared a Site of National Interest and the small town has preserved, almost intact, one of the finest examples of monumental heritage of the medieval period in Catalonia, overlooked by the imposing 18th century military fortress.

Departing from Barcelona or Girona, this half-day tour will let you discover the secrets of the town and its spectacular military fortress, which became an important point of resistance against Napoleon’s army during the Peninsular War (1810-1814).

  • Optional: At the end of the visit, you can have lunch in the fortress
