We offer you to the visit one of the biggest cities north of Barcelona: Girona, medieval city with one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe and stage where some chapters of one the seasons of the hit series Game of Thrones were shot. Girona is a monumental city where you can experience its 2000 years of history thanks to its fortified walls and the small streets of the old city center. There you will see about “Forca Vella”, a roman foundation and the medieval expansion of the walls during the centuries XIV & XV. You will enjoy a guided walking tour of the city center, visiting the Cathedral, with its well-preserved medieval streets that lead you towards the famous pastel colored houses at the edge of the river bank. The old city center of Girona holds an important artistic heritage. You will also be given some free time in Girona to enjoy the city by yourself.

ARTISTIC TOUR: Departure at 03:30PM check in at 03:15PM in Julià Travel Office, Balmes, 5. Barcelona is known as the capital of Modernism and the place where the famous architect Antoni Gaudí worked and lived. Gaudi, one of the greatest innovators of his time, left behind numerous treasures in Barcelona for the discerning tourist to discover. This Artistic Tour of Barcelona starts at Julià Travel Office in Balmes Street number 5. From there we will take you to the Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece, which is Barcelona's most famous landmark. The guide will take you on a walking tour of the exterior of the Basilica to admire the richly and symbolically decorated facades. Next you will discover Gaudi's fascinating Park Güell, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But be careful! It's easy to get lost in the whimsical design of this eccentric but compelling public park with a perfect integration of the architectural elements in nature. Towards the end of the tour we will immerse ourselves in a walking tour of Passeig de Gràcia, where we will admire Gaudi's famous apartment buildings like Casa Mila “La Pedrera”, Casa Batlló and other modernist buildings. The tour ends near Casa Batlló at Passeig de Gràcia, 43.
