The Heart of Catalonia

Grandiose views & culinary delights.

Catalonia’s hinterland has a lot to offer: spectacular nature scenery with amazing views onto characteristic landscape with its mountain ranges, in parts softly rolling and then in other parts wild and rugged all the way to the coast with the Pyrenees as a backdrop. En route you experience the culture of the region, which has been populated since time immemorial, not only in terms of Romanesque hemitages or characteristic farmhouses, but also in terms of impressive churches and monasteries. Just like the renowned Santa Maria de Montserrat monastery with its wonderful location and home of the Black Madonna, which attracts numerous pilgrims every year. There are not only well-known national parks and famous buildings to be discovered but also Catalan cuisine which will delight you with all kinds of local specialities such as wine and cheese from Montserrat.
